“The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him, It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” ~ Lamentations 3:25-26 NKJV

We human beings are so impatient. We know what we want, and we know exactly when we want it. RIGHT NOW!. But, God knows better. He has created a world that unfolds according to His own timetable, not ours.

As Christians, we must be patient as we wait for God to show us the wonderful plans that He has in store for us. And while we’re waiting for God to make His plans clear, let’s keep praying and keep giving thanks to the One who has given us more blessings than we can count.

“Grass that is here today and gone tomorrow does not require much time to mature. A big oak tree that lasts for generations requires much more time to grow and mature. God is concerned about your life through eternity. Allow Him to take all the time He needs to shape you for His
purposes. Larger assignments will require longer periods of preparation.” ~ Henry Blackby

Absolutely right on the money there and the analogy of the grass and the trees just makes it that much clearer.
