This morning, I felt led to say this to you:
Good things come to those who wait.
Many times we look at the things others around us have and we wish our circumstances could be different. We wish we could have as much shoes as they do, or the house that they have, or the relationship that they have. Many of us single women, crave to be married as we look at all the friends around us who are getting hitched (tis that season, so guard your heart).
Somewhere in the midst of looking at what others have, we compare ourselves to them. “Well if that could happen for her, why can’t it happen for me?” or “Well so and so got this and they make the same amount that I make, so I can get that too. We don’t realize this, but looking at others and comparing ourselves to them, discourages our faith and hope.
Don’t ever base your faith or hope on what others have. Your faith and hope should be based entirely on who you know God to be and what you know He can do for you. What God has for you, will be given to you in His appointed time. All you have to do is look to Him and trust him. And wait. Just wait on His appointed time.
…in every situation let your petitions be made known to God through prayers and requests, with thanksgiving. – Phil 4:6
