A reason to wait

Hello friend. It’s been a while. How has the journey of faith been? I believe very strongly that you are fine and even much more blessed.

I found ‘a reason to wait’ in the scriptures and this I want to share with you tonight.

‘The Lord your God will drive those nations out ahead of you little by little. You will not clear them away all at once, otherwise the wild animals would multiply too quickly for you.’ Deuteronomy 8:22(NLT)

These words were from the father to the Israelites as they journeyed to the promised land. Just like Israel,you’re on your way to a better place, a place of fulfilment, and you must walk and work at God’s pace for you.

God has gone ahead and seen it all! He know where the potholes are and will guide those who entrust their lives to him. Never hurry ahead of him. Yes,there is the tendency to get overly excited and clamour for a quick arrival,however, you must wait and follow the leading of the Almighty.

If he has promised you,he will bring it to pass. He is faithful,just and sincere. Trust him with all you have and wait for his leading. Never be in a hurry. In blind rush,one could run into problems that could have been avoided had one waited.

Hebrews 11:6 said it’s impossible to please God without faith. True. Your patience in your walk with God to the promised land could be a reflection of your faith in him. Let this be seen. Wait on him.

There is a reason to wait, a reason to let God take you there in the right season. A reason to trust the God who never lies.

And this is the reason: He has seen it all and will guide you along the best route to the promised land if you follow his lead.

Be patient! Wait on the Lord!

Travel safely.

Why do you seek the bread of life?

Do you seek Christ so that people can hail you as a seeker of the saviour? Do you seek him because of the blessings people have said that you will get from him? Or are you seeking him in other to satisfy your immediate needs? DO YOU SEEK HIM BECAUSE OF WHO HE IS?

Never seek Jesus for perishable blessings because he has much more than that to offer you! Seek him to know his person! Seek him to become a shining light that will lead others to him. Don’t stand in the crowd that seek him for the physical ‘bread and fish’ (JOHN 6:26), be a disciple who wants to lay hold of the eternal spiritual blessings of knowing Christ! (JOHN 6:68,69; Philippians 3:8,10)

Seek the bread of life for the knowledge of his person and he will fill you up to the brim with eternal life so much so that there will be an overflow and you will be a channel of blessing to others around you- a light so bright giving glory to God (Matthew 5:16).

The bread of life is the power that helps you bring out the God-placed abilities and endowments in you to the fullest, strive to know him for who he is and do not seek him for blessings that will only satisfy the needs of the NOW.

And when you know the bread of life and seek him correctly, you will never be hungry again- he will meet your physical need of food and satisfy your spiritual desire for the truth!

Stay filled!
