Patience

Hebrews 6:15 And so, having patiently waited, he obtained the promise

The “he” in this verse is Abraham.  He waited for 25 years for God to fulfill His promise of a son.  In those 25 years, Abraham moved many times and fell in and out of fellowship with God.  He decided to hurry God’s promise by having a son with his maid.  We still the effects of that decision today.  When God’s timing was right, Isaac was born.  God does not need us to bring about fulfillment of His promises.  When He’s ready, He will fulfill them.

It’s hard at times to be patient.  We have a tendency to look at our lives in days, where God looks at it in years.  We need to adjust our sight line to match His and trust His timing.  My pastor mentioned yesterday, that we need to stop looking at our lives through a microscope and instead look through a teloscope and see the whole picture.

Be patient and allow God to work.  Trust Him, that He has your best in mind!
