I have heard so much about, "In God's Time...". We live in a Microwave, fast paced, fast moving society and we want things instantaneously. We want our blessings and we want them NOW and are not willing to wait for God to move in our lives.
We move, move, move and hustle and bustle each day, getting kids off to school, getting ready for hectic day at work, laden with meetings and more meetings. I remember a few years ago, the company I worked for, I LIVED in meetings. It was so crazy, we had gotten to the point where we were "meeting" to schedule out future meetings!
God knows us, He knows the hairs on our heads, (and the lack thereof) and He knows our needs, but do we allow God to be God in our lives or do we tell Him, "I need this and I need it NOW!". Then we get mad at God when we don't get our way. Sounding like spoiled children, whining and throwing a fit when we don't get what we want. Well, God tells us, like any good parent would, "you need to SLOW DOWN and let ME take care of things."
The bible tells us, "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God. Do not rely on human wisdom." We have to realize that God's Ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts. We could NEVER imagine the glorious and wonderful things that God wants for us, because we are too busy moving in OUR OWN THOUGHTS.
We have to take time to slow down; listen to what the Spirit is speaking to our hearts; discern, pray and then MOVE in the Spirit. St. Paul warns us "Do NOT Grieve the Spirit", we must MOVE when the Spirit says MOVE in our lives. Remember, everything happens for a reason and it is always an opportunity for God to speak to us in our current condition. The Father wants the BEST for His Children. We have to realize that He is not a Fast Food, Drive Thru God. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last the Omnipotent, Omnipresent creator of ALL living and breathing things.
Brothers and Sister, stop, smell the roses, give thanks to the Lord and let His Spirit speak to you... and then "do not grieve the Holy Spirit's" calling in your life. Move in the Spirit of God as He directs!
God be with you now and forever; May the Peace of Jesus Christ continue to envelop you; May the Power of the Holy Spirit continue to move within and through you, for the Glory of God!
Keep us in your prayers; we will continue to keep you in ours!
