Time alone with God
In the quiet of each morning, as I’ve been seeking the Lord, reading devotionals, reading the Word, I am so encouraged to know that He is always there, He is always listening, and His plans for me are good…always good.
Friend, are you following hard after God today? Are you spending time with Him and reading His word? His truth will saturate your life, encourage you, envelope you with His strength and power to face every situation that comes your way.
1 Samuel 3:9b says, “Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening.” (NIV)
John 10:27 says, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” (ESV)
As we follow Jesus, we obey His words and carry on our lives in order to please and honor Him. Doing this will keep us close to Him and enable us to hear His voice clearly.
John 8:47a says, “Whoever belongs to God hears what God says.” (NIV)
Maybe you, like me, are waiting for some important answers from God. We can stand on His promise that He hears our prayers, He knows our hearts, and He knows our needs, and He will answer in His perfect timing.
Let us not grow weary in waiting on Him. Let us not forge ahead with our own ideas to try to solve our problems. But let us praise Him, thank Him, trust Him, knowing full well that He will bring good things our way in His perfect time.
Is it hard to wait? Sometimes it sure seems to be. But waiting for God’s best is ALWAYS worth the wait.
