My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

Waiting Can End Quickly

No doubt we all wait from time to time. Maybe a lot of the time. I find myself waiting on God…waiting…waiting. It’s easy to lose heart and have our faith challenged. And while many times God is actually waiting on us, there are situations where other things simply haven’t fallen in to place yet. The time is not right for God to act.

Isaiah chapter 60 is about Christ’s return and the very last sentence is the kicker. Verse 22b says, “I will accomplish it quickly in its time.” Even though it may seem like something is taking forever and the waiting endless, and you simply can’t see how things will ever come together, remember this verse. When it’s time, God can make things happen so quickly it may make your head spin.

 

How Stubborn Can We Be?

Of all the plagues and tortures that will be poured out at the end of time, it is amazing that people will still refuse to repent, acknowledge God for who He is, and worship Him (Rev 9:20-21, Rev 16:9 & 21). I mean, please, how much evidence of His power and supremacy do you need? It is hard to imagine being that deceived or just plain angry.

But in a way, we do it every day. Most of us are stubborn at times about repenting. I don’t mean saying, “I’m sorry God, forgive me.” I mean true repentance. And even more so than that, most of us are very stubborn about letting go of our plans and ideas and accepting God’s, especially when we don’t know what God’s is.

Selfishness and fear often block the door of progress to a better life. Whether that better life be eternity in heaven or being all we can be in Christ while still here on Earth, we’ll never get there until we stop resisting God and His will for us.
