- December 4th: Marinating in Patience
Psalm 27:14 – “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!”
As meat marinates, flavors penetrate deep within, making every bite delectable. Similarly, patience in our spiritual journey allows God’s promises and His word to penetrate our very being. The wait, though at times excruciating, yields profound results – a faith that’s deeply flavored by trust and reliance on God.
Waiting isn’t passive; it’s an active stance of trust. It’s a belief that God’s timing, though seemingly late, is always perfect.
1. In which areas of my life am I struggling to wait on the Lord?
2. How can I cultivate deeper patience and trust in His timing?
PrayerGod, grant me the patience to wait upon You. Even when my spirit grows weary, renew my strength, and let my heart take courage in Your promises. Amen.
