God is never in a hurry when it comes to developing His followers to do His will. We tend to want things right now. If it doesn’t happen fast, then something is wrong.
God is not in a hurry as we are. People often move too fast through life, rushing headlong into the unknown. What we need to learn is that hasty decisions, decisions made without knowing all there is to know about them, tend to be bad decisions.
When we take our time, hear both sides, and process the pros and cons, we tend to make better decisions. So, God takes His time in developing us. He knows exactly what we need, what weneed to work on, and what skills or understanding we will need in the future.
With God, He is the potter, and we are the clay. He is constantly molding us into His image, and that takes time. A person without knowledge is no good. A person in a hurry makes mistakes (Proverbs 19:2 GW). So, there is a process we must all go through when it comes to growing and getting to know God. And no one gets to skip the process.
So, let’s slow down, think through things, and not make hasty decisions, but allow God to grow us. Life can be more enjoyable if we want it to be.
Just a thought,
