Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! (Psalm 37:7, ESV)
I’ve always been a watcher. I find people fascinating.
But there are times when my watching is not fascination, it’s frustration. It’s filled with fretting.
They have better. Then have more. Why can’t I have what they have?
I begin to whine and stomp like a three year old not getting their way in the playroom.
It’s not a pretty sight. And it doesn’t feel good inside either.
God’s solution: stop it! Still yourself and wait patiently. For him.
I will not get it “right” if all I do is try and wait for the things others have.
That’s not what God is offering.
He’s offering himself. And I am to wait for that…to want Him.
No toy, no gizmo or gadget, will ever satisfy the way He does.
Be still, wait patiently for Him.
PRAYER: God, you offer more than the toys the of world. Still me. I don’t want to fret over them any longer. I want you.
