There are times in life when waiting is just not what we want to do – something somewhere inside us wants to move, make a change, or a decision yet we don’t know where to move, what to change or which decision is best, so we wait and it can be most frustrating.  Or we move too soon and that can be devastating.

As we enter into a relationship with and come to know Jesus better, as we read and study the Word of God the more we discern rightly when these things are of Him and His will or just the ramblings of a perhaps discontent mind.  

The apostle Paul tells that he had to learn to be content, (Phil. 4:11), and that he learned the secret of contentment, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Phil 4:13). Even wait.  When these ramblings come barreling in it is best to lay them at the Lord’s feet prayerfully and yes, wait.  Waiting for that yes, no, not now or whatever the truth may be, yet better wait than rush.

In my life I’ve taken steps too soon and gotten ahead of my Guide and gotten lost, off track and most likely even missed some easier steps.  So now, when the ramblings are rolling, I am still and listen … and hear:

We’ll Advance In Time

Isaiah 40:28-31 ~ NET

Do you know know?  
Have you not heard?  
The LORD is an eternal God, the creator of the whole earth.  
He does not get tired or weary; there is no limit to his wisdom.  
He gives strength to those who are tired; to the ones who lack power, he gives renewed energy.  
Even youths get tired and weary; even strong young men clumsily stumble.   

But those who wait for the LORD's help find renewed strength; they rise up as if they had eagles' wings, they run without growing weary, they walk without getting tired.
