Are You a Microwave or a Crock Pot?

In our fast paced society we often want everything done quickly or your boss wants it done yesterday. In your spiritual life are you a Microwave or Crock Pot? I think often we want God to answer our prayers in Microwave fashion. I prayed a specific request today and I want it answered today. If our prayers are not answered quickly, we often wonder, ďWhat is God doing?Ē We also decide to go it on our own and not wait for Godís direction. Often it is difficult to wait on Godís timing.

When we are in Crock Pot mode we pray and rest in the knowledge that Godís timing is best. Often, God may have to let several things simmer in our life before He answers our prayer. Many times in my life I have seen Godís handiwork after the situation is over. If God had answered my prayer the way I wanted Him to, it would not have gone well at all. God knows what is best for us and when it is best for something to happen.

I look at Scripture and see God works in Microwave and Crock Pot mode. When Daniel was in the lionís den God worked immediately to shut the mouths of the lions. I have to admit if I was Daniel I would want to know why God didnít act before I was thrown in the lionís den. Daniel being thrown in the lionís den was used to reflect Godís glory and power. God also works in Crock Pot mode. Do you remember Joshua and the battle of Jericho? The people of Israel were marching around a wall for 7 days. Donít you imagine they asked God, ďWhy?Ē During that time Rahab was getting her family ready to leave Jericho. Could it be that God took seven days of marching around Jericho, to save one woman and her family? Could it be that God took that time for one woman who was faithful to God in spite of her lifestyle, in spite of her whole community being against God to show His glory? Most of the Israelites did not know about Rahab, but God did. In Godís perfect timing He rescued the Israelites and Rahab, not in the way the Israelites would have wanted. God gave them victory in the battle in Crock Pot mode.

So, I ask you are you in Microwave mode or Crock Pot mode in your spiritual life? Please remember God is always in control even when it feels everything is out of control. Trust Godís timing and know He only wants what is best for you.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
