It is vital to know the timing of God regarding any vision He gives us. Great ideas aren’t always “God” ideas. Many begin well but miss the timing of God. Usurping authority or refusing to take it can both result in the loss of ministry potential. It is always wise to seek godly counsel and give ample time to listen for the voice of the Lord.
Read Ps. 18:30-36, Prov. 4:18-27, Rom. 12:3-8, Gal. 1:10, 1 Thess. 5:23-24, Heb. 10:35-39
Learning to wait for God is a lifelong exercise. At times, it’s difficult to see what He is orchestrating. Allow Him to establish His peace in Your heart. In His time, He will give you understanding.
Father, thank You for glimpses of what we can do for the advancement of Your kindom. May every dream You give us be accompanied by Your peace and an assurance that the time will come for the realization of our hopes. Give us the mind of Christ to see into the realm of the Spirit. Help us to guard our hearts against impatience. Amen.
