Tomorrow I have to take my daughter to the doctor for her check-up and possibly some booster shots. Most of us remember a children going to the doctor every so often to get another shot to help protect us for dreaded diseases. These shots were designed to work with the original shot and help booster the protection that was already given unto us.
Well today, I need a booster shot of Faith. It is not that I am staggering or wavering in the belief of the promise, I just feel like I need more. I take today's example from the apostles, who asked the Lord to "Increase OUR Faith." They didn't lack faith they just wanted more Faith to help them accomplish the goals that were set before them. Again this is not Bible study, but my life in stereo.
I know that God has some wonderful and precious promises before me. It just seems extremely hard to keep my focus. I have been assured that God is working everything out and that I must wait patiently to obtain the prize. Receiving a personal word from the Lord is awesome because it helps me to be assured that I am on the right path. But if you know me, you know that I am a doer and I need to get it done.
The Lord is teaching me to be patient and be still. I read a devotion the other day and it talked about making our hearts to sit still. This devotion was so on time because in my heart was racing, thinking about what I wanted to accomplish and by what time. I began to faint in my heart because all of those deadlines are passing. The writer said that "If we faint not at the promises, but believe in our hearts, patiently waiting for God to line up everything we will need, He will do just what he promised".
That is what I shall do. In the midst of praising Him for everything (because this is my month of praise), I will begin to still my heart and wait on Him. God has made everything good in His time. I believe that!
