My life is fast pace, hectic, and very uncertain most of the time. And I often find myself anxious and not trusting in the Lord’s silence. It is in those silent moments, the Lord is speaking to us. Just wait for Him. This poem is from my daily devotional, Streams in the Dessert and is a great reminder to me this morning.
Be quiet! Why this anxious heed
About your tangled ways?
God knows them all. He gives you speed
And He allows delays.
It’s good for you to walk by faith
And not by sight.
Take it on trust a little while.
Soon will you read the mystery aright
In the full sunshine of His smile.
In times of uncertainty-WAIT. If you have any doubt-WAIT, never forcing yourself into action. If you sense any restraint in your spirit, do not go against it- WAIT until the way is clear.
In what ways can you slow down and wait for the Lord?
Are you trusting in His silence?
“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him…” Psalm 37:7
