Don't Take Matters Into Your Own Hands

Micah 7:7 Therefore I will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; My God will hear me. As a child were you ever told, "Not now, just wait?" Waiting can be hard on our flesh. We want what we want and we want it now. Waiting doesn't have to mean we do nothing at all. It means that we don't try to make things happen in our own strength. What I'm saying is, while waiting we are expecting. Our hope and trust is in the Lord. We look to Him to do what only He can do. We are not idle in our waiting, but active in praise and thanksgiving and confession of the promises of God. As this process is taking place, we receive His strength to continue. Our strength will be renewed like the eagle's, strong, soaring and overcoming.
