When I read about all of these other religions, it always involves this list of things that are practically unattainable that don’t really guarantee anything for you spiritually. What a terrible way to live your life in uncertainty! For us, the Lord wants us to remember what He has done to bring us to a place where we will do what is just, merciful, and walk in humility with Him.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day (Psalm 25:5).
I think if you ask most Christians, they would say they are led by the Lord. We try our best, right? When we are led by the Lord, it means we are following Him in everything. But I think it’s interesting that the Psalmist makes a point to talk about waiting on God. It doesn’t say waiting a few seconds, when I think I am ready, not even an hour. It says I will wait all day long to move if you would have me waiting with you. What are you rushing into? What are you eagerly moving in that God is saying, “Stay here for a moment.” Waiting upon the Lord doesn’t mean you are not doing anything, it means you are learning patience. Wait upon Him.
Patiently seeking Him,
Pastor Sean Boehm
