Jesus Calling #8
Love this recent devotional from Jesus Calling. God is training us while we wait. Nothing He does is considered wasted time and even though He hasn’t answered our prayers yet, He is refining us and teaching us so much while we continue to wait. Praise Him!
I am able to do far beyond all that you ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20-21). Come to Me with positive expectations knowing that there is no limit to what I can accomplish. Ask My Spirit to control your mind, so that you can think great thoughts of Me. Do not be discouraged by the fact that many of your prayers are yet unanswered. Time is a trainer, teaching you to wait upon Me, to trust Me in the dark. The more extreme your circumstances, the more likely you are to see My Power and Glory (Revelations 5:13) at work in the situation. Instead of letting difficulties draw you into worrying, try to view them as setting the scene for My glorious intervention. Keep your eyes and your mind wide open to all that I am doing in your life.
