Learning God’s Ways


What I’ve noticed about God is sometimes, He may not give us a quick answer to our need. He takes us on a journey instead.

So I have repeatedly adjusted my expectations. I sync with God; I don’t expect Him to sync with me.

I enjoy it when He answers promptly and I express my gratitude to Him; when He doesn’t, I prepare myself for a journey, possibly with some dead ends, and trust that all will turn out well.

It is good for our well-being to put our confidence in the Lord.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
    but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
They are brought to their knees and fall,
    but we rise up and stand firm. (Psalm 20, NIV)

Do not put your trust in princes,
    in human beings, who cannot save. (Psalm 146, NIV)
