Psalm 40 (New King James Version)
To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1 I waited patiently for the LORD;
And He inclined to me,
And heard my cry.
2 He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
Out of the miry clay,
And set my feet upon a rock,
And established my steps.

No amount of worrying can make things happen, let alone make them happen the way you want. Still, your human nature, bent on trying, rises to the challenge. What's the remedy for this all too common malady? Oswald Chambers, in his classic My Utmost for His Highest, wrote, "When God brings a time of waiting, and appears to be unresponsive, don't fill it with busyness, just wait....If you have the slightest doubt, then He is not guiding."

The study of Abraham and Sarah illustrates the futility of trying to make a divine promise come about in your own timing. Tired of waiting for a son, Sarah took matters into her own hands. The result was disastrous. God's timetable always delivers an Isaac when the time is right.

Prayer:
Slow me down, God, when I am in a hurry and You are not. Help me walk with you, not ahead of you. Teach me to plant the see and leave the harvest to you. In Jesus' name, Amen.
