Psalm 103-15

Some flowers like the Bird of Paradise grow so slowly that we’d be happy to have their lifespan worked out into human years.  But others, like the Hibiscus, bloom and die within one day.

Verse 16 of Psalm 103 goes on to state:  “the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.

Our days are numbered on this planet, so make every day count for the Kingdom!

Do you wait well?

I do when I think about it.  When I remind myself that God’s timetable is not my timetable.  I want what I want when I want it.

God says, “Hold on child.  Don’t get in front of me.  Wait.”

Chagrinned, I drop my head.  “Yes, Lord,” I whisper.  But part of me still strains.

Until, like the Marlin sitting on my Dad’s boat and waiting for his dinner, I surrender my want to Christ.

And wait.  Expectant.

As this election season gets crazier and crazier, look to the One who is eternal.  The Beginning and the End.  In Christ alone we have the light of life.  No matter who wins in November, no darkness will overcome us.

But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t vote!!

Exercise your right!   🙂

Jesus is the Way.  The Truth.  The Life. (John 14:6)

It was through His death on the cross that He made a way for us to come to the Father.

So now, come near to God with a sincere heart.  Seek Him passionately.  Search Him with your whole being.  Read His word and get to know Him.  Chip Ingram said recently that we are to, “take the initiative with God’s word.”  Dig in.  Be teachable.

Ask God to reveal Himself to you … and then buckle your seat belt.  The God of the universe will show Himself to you in full assurance of faith, for He who promised is faithful.

It’s so true, isn’t it?

The longer you’re in God’s Word and following Jesus, you build up trust and faith in Him and strength in His continued love and faithfulness.

When God tells you he’ll never leave you, He’s serious.  If your roots are strong, you can weather any storm or trial you might encounter.

So sink your roots down into His fertile soil and get ready to grow stronger in your faith.
