Why do we look for answers with impatience? Why do we struggle with faith not knowing for sure in our hearts that he will show up? We worry… we get impatient… we want our way, in our time. We look to our own understanding with no regard to his ways… his time. We make our plans without regard to his plan or asking for his guidance. The world has taught us to want it now. He teaches us to be faithful and trust. Holy spirit guide me in his ways… in his time… that my faith may be strong. Allow me to have an unwavering spirit as I wait patiently on him and his answers. Lead me Oh Lord!!
His question was “how often do you read your bible and when do you pray”? As I ministered to his needs my simple answer was “What does it matter”? God does not want us to keep a check list or a time table on how often we do things. We are not making points simply by reading the word or praying for so long everyday. As followers we have to start living and be lead in the Holy Spirit. When we set up laws and lists. When we place demands on ourselves with regards to obedience then it becomes more about work and less about love. It should more about love and less about rules. Deep love for him will lead you to his word and to his side. Not to list and record keeping.
Luke 20: 46 – 47
