Today’s devotional is teaching us the power behind being still. We all want to jump up and do what we think is our personal mission but truly if you just sit and wait for God to reveal to us His mission, we will be able to accomplish so much more. Where if we just jump and act on what we think is best, we end up spending valuable time going back and retracing our steps that took us in the wrong direction, keeping us from accomplishing all that we could have if we just waited to hear from Him. We may think that God would direct us to a certain mission, and the longer you have been working for God, the more of a danger this can be. God knows everything, past, present, and future, so He alone knows the way to direct each step we take. Then we can accomplish the most for our Father’s mission. Those who are new to a commitment with our Heavenly Father find this much easier to just wait. Being in training we understand there is yet much we don’t know, however those who have been involved with our Father most of their lives, often think they know what God would have them do. This can lead us down the wrong road and make it harder for God to accomplish His plan. We all have to pray, sit and wait, truly wait, till we feel like God has shown us the steps to take, and in which direction. We will never be at the point where we can determine what God would have us do in any situiation. Patience is a very hard pill to swallow, but indeed it is vital. However I warn you against praying for patience, because it is from trials that we learn this vital lesson in life. Blind faith will show us that God will give you exactly what you need when you need it, and never to doubt that.
