August 17, Today’s thought – Waiting Requires Patience

Sauteed veggies on toasted thin muffins make a ‘from the garden” dinner.

Good Morning

In waiting, I waited, for the Lord. Psalm 40:1

Waiting is much more difficult than walking. Waiting requires patience, and patience is a rare virtue. It is fine to know that God builds hedges around His people–when the hedge is looked at from the viewpoint of protection. But when the hedge is kept around one until it grows so high that the cannot see over the top and wonders whether he is ever to get out of the little sphere of influence and service in which he is pent up, it is hard for him sometimes to understand why he may not have a larger environment–hard for him to “brighten the corer” where he is. But God has a purpose in all HIS holdups. “The steps of a good man are ordered of the Lord,” reads Psalm 37:23

On the margin of his Bible at this verse George Mueller had a notation. “And the stops also.” It is a sad mistake for men to break through God’s hedges. It is vital principle of guidance for a Christian never to move out of the place in which he is sure God has placed him, until the Pillar of Cloud moves. –Sunday School Times.

Trust God for your Day . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
