No Rush, God

English Audio Version

Sometimes we want to pedal tomorrow’s bicycle.

We want to somehow reach into yesterday and get today’s problems solved before they happen.

We want on the morning train even before the previous evening has begun to darken the sky.

No rush, God. Yesterday is fine, and if you can get it done last week, that’s even better.

But no rush. We can be patient, if you can swing by with an answer before the alarm goes off YESTERDAY.

God says, “Slow down there, baby pumpkin. I’ve not forgotten you are my creation, and you need my care.”

Lamentations 3:25 offers us God’s reassurance:

“The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.”

We love the first part of this verse. “The Lord is good to those . . .”

Then we gloss over the last part, the really important things we must do if we want the Lord to be good to us.

Let’s spell them out:

1. We must wait for the Lord.

How? We give him our needs, tell him our traumas, offer him our yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows, and quit worrying about what we’ve placed in his hands.

2. We seek after him.

We do this in prayer – regular, heart-felt appeals to the Lord – and through reading and study of his Word. The pages of the Bible reveal the nature and character of God, and it is there that we learn to trust him in all things.

So, no rush, God. We can say that and mean it. It’s called faith, trust, confidence . . . yeah, you’re getting it now.

God is our reassurance in trouble, and he wants to be good to us.
