Patience is truly one of those things I wish we didn’t have to learn. Moses was lost in the wilderness into obscurity for almost four decades until the Lord appeared to him in a burning bush. He was almost 80 years old by then. I sometimes wonder if the vision God had given him was still alive in him or had it died down. All the while he was tending his flock, God was actually preparing him to shepherd His people and lead them out of captivity. Sometimes during the unassuming silent years, you may be wondering what is going on in my life. “Has God forgotten I exist?” What happened to the vision and promises He gave me? At just the right time God will promote you to where you are supposed to be. Though it tarries, wait for it… Habakkuk 2:3
I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
- Philippians 1:20-21
What your brothers and sisters really need today is encouraging, refreshing words and support. Be there for each other today. Show them what is means to be in the family of God. Treat each other kindly.
