Psalms 40:1-3
Patience has not been one of my better qualities and God knows that. However, when I read scripture that pertains to my flaw, the value of patience shines through. There are many lessons to gain through patience and one lesson comes from today’s scripture. When David faced his greatest battles, he waited upon the Lord. God delivered him from destruction and set his feet on solid ground.  He will do the same for you. When you abide in Him, He gives you supernatural energy to accomplish the things He requires of you. His Spirit does for you what you cannot do for yourself. It is as simple as this; God strengthens us as we lean on Him during delays. Isaiah 40:31 tells us, “Those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength.” The spirit of God lifts us up, and His energy and strength sustain us as we abide in Him. Let us be patient and willing to remain in our current position until we receive clear divine direction. Pausing for clarity from God does not mean that you disengage and allow circumstances to fall apart around you. Waiting upon the Lord is a deliberate decision that requires patience and courage. God will renew your strength and give direction. Be Patient!  God loves Ya;)
