“Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.” Galatians 6:9
From the Heart of God:
I am not on your timetable, but you’re definitely on Mine. You wonder at times if I even have one. Yep I do, and you know it. I hold time and eternity in My hands, and nothing slips through the cracks forgotten – no small detail, and certainly not big ones.
I have already put all the ingredients together (before time even began), and things are always IN PROCESS. People tend to hate “process”, but it is what life is made up of.
Embrace life to its fullest; don’t allow what is “not yet” to rob you of TODAY.
Start a gratefulness journal and lean in. Put your “ear to My heart”. Hear it beat: rhythm, process, steady, dependable, strong for you, for you, My love.
Lean in, press your ear and hear. Write it down, and give thanks for all My many blessings.
You’re not forgotten, looked over, or taken for granted – NEVER these, in My heart. Seek My heart on things, not just how they feel, seem, appear, what’s practical, or shiny and pretty.
Lean in and hear My heart.
I have given you an open ear to hear it’s beating, not only for yourself but also for those I place in your path.
I invite you to lean in.
There is a process of putting ingredients together – each individual part being absolutely necessary and not to be missed! There’s then (think of bread baking) the time of kneading, of resting and rising, and cooking – when you finally smell the fragrance and know it’s almost done. Most of this process is easy as it just happens and yet hard as you must WAIT – “easy/hard”. Don’t grow weary of the work or the wait. It WILL YIELD!
There is a day coming when all that you have been waiting for will be seen. It will be right there before your very eyes, and it will be worth the wait. You will say, “This is it!” I will release that proclamation to your heart. “And you will know that I am the LORD; Those who hopefully wait for Me will not be put to shame” (Isaiah 49:23b).
Wait upon the Lord, and as you do, sing His praises.
“You keep him in perfect peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because he trusts in you.
Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.” Isaiah 26:3-4 ESV
I pray that this encourages those of you who are in any season of waiting, as many are. May we all trust Him and His perfect timing. If you aren’t receiving these weekly devotionals in your inbox and would like to, just let me know by clicking here.
What is your plan to lean in to hear His heart today? He is a “rewarder of those who seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). Believe!
“You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
