ok so heres a little background info...lately i've been throwing myself a pity party because it seemed like my bible reading and praying was doing nothing and changing nothing in my life. so i would pray and ask God "why?! why can't i feel you right now? why can't i see a change? i want to know you more and have the passion, but it's hard when i don't see you." i wanted it to happen NOW! well, last night i was on "Our Simple Minds," and read Darren's thoughts about Psalm 27:4, so i decided to check out the rest of the chapter. READ IT NOW! heres some of those key verses that screamed "this is your verse!" when i read them.
vs. 4 & 7---"one thing have i asked of the LORD, that will i seek after: that i may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life...Hear, O LORD, when i cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me! you have said "Seek my face." My heart says to you "Your face, LORD, do i seek." hide not your face from me."
those verses, no joke, have been the dialogue between me and God lately.
vs. 13&14---"i believe that i shall look upon the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living! Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD."
God and i were on completely different time zones. i wanted it NOW and he said "Wait for the LORD." it was so amazing when i read this. it just clicked in my mind! God is so GOOD! now i see that his timimg is perfect, and so amazing. this chapter really encouraged my, and i pray it encourages you to wait for God and know that his timing is perfect!
