Devotions dating

” This dear saint started out by telling me some shattering news and then finished by praying for me!

It is in waiting upon God that our eyes are opened to believe in His wise and sovereign will, and to see that the sooner and the more completely we yield absolutely to it, the more surely His blessing can come to us.

There we discover how impatient we are, and what our impatience means.

We confess at times that we are impatient with men, and circumstances that hinder us, or with ourselves and our slow progress in the Christian life.

“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him, Those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the land.”Psalms 37:7, 9 “In patience possess your souls.” “Ye have need of patience.” “Let patience have its perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire." Such words of the Holy Spirit show us what an important element in the Christian life and character patience is.

And nowhere is there a better place for cultivating or displaying it than in waiting on God.

So when relationships end, when we feel ashamed, or life throws us a curveball, we can have peace knowing that the Creator of the Universe, God, is working in ways we can’t even imagine because He loves us. Take a moment to thank God for his everlasting love! If this devotion spoke to you in a particular way and you feel led to share your thoughts with others, please do so.

To me, I find great comfort in knowing this, and to me, God’s unconditional love is all that matters.

We have as little power to increase or strengthen our spiritual life, as we had to originate it.
