Daily Devotional Rev. Johnnie Flakes,III - March 23, 2009
Our devotion for todaycomes from Luke 15:12:13 "And not many days after that, the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living."
Wherever you are today, meditate on this; we send some very strong messages by exhibiting impatience toward God. When we demonstrate an inability to tolerate delay, we are telling the Lord, "I do not trust your timing, mine is better." At times, we all stand at forks in the road of life and must decide if we are willing to wait for God's prompting. It is very important that we obey Him and be patient with His schedule and plan.
One example is the Prodigal Son, who in squandering his inheritance, faced several consequences.
We can never experience fellowship with God when impatience keeps us outside of His will. It is better that we wait on God to tell us when to move forward.
Have a blessed waiting day!
