Psalm 27:14 ESV

Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD.

When you don't know what to do next, or it seems like GOD is not giving you your next step, then wait.  Wait on the LORD to speak!  HE made you a promise and our GOD doesn't lie.  HE will keep HIS word.  We often get anxious and we begin to make moves and then we become angry because they did not work out (or "appear" to have not worked out) in this season.  Yet we fail to accept that we moved without GOD's direction.  I've found that when GOD is directing my moves that there is an unexplainable peace that I have.  Even when everything around me seems to be in disarray, my heart is at rest.

This morning during devotion, my son and I discussed this very thing and the LORD said this:  "Sometimes the wait is not even about you."  HE went on to reveal that some times the wait is to strengthen you and to build your character.  Yet in other times it is because the person, or thing that is needed to perfect this blessing are not currently in place.  GOD will not give us a half packed pie.  This means that because GOD has a plan for us and HE knows the end from the beginning that HE also knows where everything is that is needed for HIS promises to manifest and HE is not going to give you anything less than HIS perfection.  Don't be angry with GOD when things don't happen on your timetable.  Be glad that we serve a GOD who is the FATHER of time, who knows all things and who is not moved by our tantrums.  For if HE was, HE would not be GOD and we would be a people most lost. 

The question at this point is what do you really want?  Do you want what only you can provide for yourself?  Or do you want what GOD has planned for you since before you were in your mother's womb?  I'm choosing HIS plan!
