There are a couple of things I have been praying and thinking about recently that I won’t go into detail over here. Now whether you are a believer or not there is that gut feeling sometimes to leave it and wait. For me as a Christian – it’s God; but for non Christians – instinct I guess! Anyway, so this week – I clearly felt God say, “wait a while! I have it sorted” both for me and for some other people I know. And it’s a very weird place to be but that’s okay!
This morning in my daily reading with God – I read this!
Sisters, there is so much work to do. We see need, pain and injustice all around us and our knees quickly buckle under the weight. We long to make our lists and check them twice and fix it all right this second. But we dare not make a move without God. As Ian Hamilton said it, “Beloved, our great and pressing need today is to give ourselves to waiting upon God, because waiting time is never wasted time.”
Nehemiah was an ordinary servant who would do extraordinary things, but he did them by moving with God. Not running ahead but walking beside.
God can use us today. He can use even us. He can do it because it is not about our resources, our resumé or our strength, but it is all about His power, His goodness, His grace.
It is all about Him.”
So I guess it’s time to wait – Nehemiah did!
