Today’s Scripture: And the word of God continued to increase, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly inJerusalem, and a great many of the priests became obedient to the faith. Acts 6:7 ESV
We are an impatient people aren’t we?
I have traveled back four and half years to my last devotion before I admitted I was an alcoholic. I was amazed that Oswald Chambers reading for that day was “The Enormous Leisure of God”. Little did I understand my life’s path. God’s leisure is so enormous we can not understand it. Oswald Chamber’s example was Moses who knew he was the man to deliver his people but he was sent into the wilderness for forty YEARS.
Looking back on where God has brought His people, there is time. Lot’s of time and lot’s of time for His Word to increase. Even Jesus Himself we are told in that gap between when he was twelve years old in the temple until beginning His public ministry at the age of 30 that he continued to grow in wisdom and stature.
Can we trust that we are growing too? Can we continue to worship God and allow His Word to increase in us? Yes, I believe we can praise Him and seek His Word daily and it will increase in us and in our abundance we can increase others.
How has God’s word been increasing in you?
Today’s Prayer: Father God, I can not grasp your ways over these many years. I can only trust You and Your timing. Please continue to increase Your Word in me and use me in Your perfect time. Fill me Lord so I may help provide increase. Amen
