I love when God does this…

As posted yesterday, I’ve been praying for greater strength and courage. At the same time, I feel like I’m missing something because it hasn’t been happening. I’m bone weary, all the time.

God’s timing is perfect.  “God doesn’t always come when we call, but when He does come He’s never late.” I believe this, but I also wonder how often I miss His answer because I’m stuck in my bad attitude or old habits.

I didn’t read it right away. In fact, I waited until late Monday morning. I thought I was being lazy. It isn’t like I didn’t have time to read it sooner. I simply kept putting it off. I’d look at the notification and think, “I need to read that.” And then I’d think, “Not yet. Save it.”

I believe it was a God prompting. He knew I wasn’t ready yet. I’d needed to sort out some thoughts first. Monday morning, I knew it was time, and I found the answer I was seeking.

This is what I’m failing to recognize:

“What God gives us when we call to Him in times of trouble is an increased trust in His strength.”

I keep expecting to be given the strength I need, and all the while God is patiently teaching me to trust in His strength.

Now, I wonder how many times He’s going to need to repeat the lesson before it sticks. 🙂 I’m so grateful God is patient and persistent.
