Gen 15:3-4 Then Abram said, “Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!”
And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.”
Abram was willing to settle for Eliezar of Damascus to be his heir; he was willing to forgo the stress of waiting and wondering for it just to be over and life move forward.
There are times you can be so desperate to move forward you will compromise for something less than God wants for you.
God has a plan. His plan is perfect. Your plan is flawed, unless that plan is to wait on God.
There are people right now settling for less than God wants for them. They are living in their sin when God wants them to live in Christ.
Some are praying to trees or dead religious leaders when God wants to answer their prayers.
You may be struggling to make ends meet or you may make lots of money but aren’t truly fulfilled or happy. God wants you to be dependent on Him for all you need, including happiness and joy.
Don’t settle for less. Wait on the Lord.
Ps 37:7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Ps 27:14 Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
Isa 40:31 But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.
Abba, I want the most that You desire to give to me. In Jesus name, YES&AMEN
