Total Commitment to Obedience - Wednesday's Dose - 3rd May 2017




“Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you” - (Psalm 9:10).

Thoughts for Today

In fervently seeking God's will for our lives, there are moments when we clearly hear God's voice. Unfortunately, there are also moments when we do not wait around to let Him finish His sentence. We may hear what God is saying, but we do not listen to every part of His direction for us. Following God completely means there must be a total commitment to obedience—no matter how long it takes.
Hailed as a hero in the realm of faith, Abraham had his moments of weakness that proved to be costly. Even though he heard God's promise that his offspring would be innumerable, Abraham struggled to wait; mistakenly supposing that maybe God meant his offspring would come through his maidservant, Hagar.

God fulfilled His promise to Abraham; Sarah had a child. Even when we make mistakes, God still sticks by His Word—He never fails us. However, we must be ever diligent to prove faithful to what God calls us to do in our lives. God does not choose to make us wait because He enjoys making us suffer; we wait because His timing is always the best for us.

Oftentimes, we don't see how disaster was averted by waiting on God. Or we might know all too well how our impatience resulted in a costly lesson. Waiting on God's best for our lives proves we believe Him. It demonstrates our faith in who He is and what He says about our lives. Learning to wait on His perfect timing results in even greater joy when His promises are fully realized in our lives.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, forgive me for the times I have been impatient and have made costly mistakes. Please teach me to have patience in following You today. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and May God Bless you.
