Daily Devotional - 22nd August, 2012 - God give me Patience!


Daily Devotional - 22nd August, 2012
People have told me over the years to not run ahead of God. Here’s the thing. I’m not known for my amazing patience...I sometimes pop the toast up early, because I can’t be bothered waiting for perfectly cooked bread!
Quite often we’re keen to run ahead of God’s plan for our life, and do things our own way. Sure, God will still be in our lives and bless us, but how exciting and more rewarding would life be, if we always had the patience to be right where God wants us.
We only have to look to the story in the Bible of Abraham and Sarah, to see a couple that God promised to give a baby to in their old age. They laughed at the ludicrous thought, and they were so impatient to wait for God to fulfil his promise of blessing their future generations that Abraham slept with Hagar and she fell pregnant. She had a son, in whom they named Ishmael. I wonder what God thought about their impatience?!
Why not be patient and wait to see what God has in store for your life...?

Ponder: Are you patient? Are there areas of your life where you need to ask God for more patience?
Bible: Genesis 15:1-6
