Good Morning

And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush. When Moses saw it, he wondered at the sight: and as he drew near to behold it, the voice of the Lord came unto him, Saying, I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold. Then said the Lord to him, Put off thy shoes from thy feet: for the place where thou standest is holy ground. I have seen, I have seen the affliction of my people which is in Egypt, and I have heard their groaning, and am come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send thee into Egypt. Acts 7:30-34

That was a long wait in preparation for a great mission.
When God delays,
He is not inactive.
He is getting ready His instruments,
He is ripening our powers;
and at the appointed moment
we shall arise equal to our task.
Even Jesus of Nazareth was thirty years in privacy,
growing in wisdom before He began His work.
~~~Dr. Jowett

God is never in a hurry but spends years with those He expects to greatly use. He never thinks the days of preparation too long or too dull.

Let God prepare . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
