While I was eating my salad I began to get impatient. I wanted the steak..BAD. I kept asking when was it going to be done?! I kept asking what’s taking so long?! My dad reassured me he knew what he was doing and he was going to give me the steak when it was ready. He told me to trust him because he has done this before. Immediately I felt God speak to me.
What are you praying for today? Is it something new that you are “starving for”. I’m here to tell you right now to be patient. Your Father God has your back. He knows when what your waiting for will be ready. He knows if it needs more time to cook and he knows when its just right. All you have to do is sit back and be patient. God is not stupid and this isn’t his first rodeo. He knows just what you need.
Another thing is, while your eating you will not starve! I was hollering from the kitchen at a table eating my salad. It’s not like I had an empty plate and a glass of water chilling on my table. I was already being fed even if it wasn’t what I really really wanted. I ask you today. What has God given you while you wait for the big thing you have been asking for? Sometimes we don’t realize we are in a transitioning season and the thing we are doing now is being used to pass time until whatever we want is ready for us to get.
This week I challenge you to relax at your table. Be thankful for what you have now and trust that your Father is coming with what you really want. If I got the steak before it was ready, I wouldn’t like it because I like mine well done. Don’t rush God to the point where he gives you that job, man/woman, city, book, ministry and it’s not what you really want because its not ready! Sit back and relax in your NOW; he’s got the details laid out already for later.
