On Friday I talked about God sending His comfort at just the right time. If you missed it you can read it here. A scripture was sent to me in an email on Friday and I have been keeping that scripture in my heart. So this week I am going to memorize the entire scripture and pray on it daily.
"Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes." Psalm 37:7
It is always so easy to become angry or jealous when we see other people getting what we want. Watching my husband get frustrated because his number was not selected was hard. But we have to remember that God's timing is perfect and He has plans for us. Sometimes we may not understand those plans or wonder why it is taking so long but knowing that God wants us to be still and wait for him brings much peace. Because I know what God has planned for me is going to be much bigger than I can imagine. Our faith becomes stronger because we are leaning on Him and giving everything to Him. We need to keep our eyes on the prize and that is our walk with God. We have to stop looking at what others have and what we do not. We need to be happy with what we already have. We may not get what the world says we need but having my Salvation is all I want.
