How patient is our Lord!
For centuries He has waited for hardened human hearts to turn toward Him; to seek His face. I was once one of those hardened hearts. I went about my day, rarely a thought of Him... unless I needed something.
I believed in God.
I just didn't care to hang out with Him.
I mean seriously, I was busy and all.
I had my agenda, my plans, my ideas.
Or so I thought.
I have not come to a place of perfect, by any means. I still fail Him every day. But what He has shown me through trials and struggles, is that He cares less about my perfection and more about my heart's desire.
I realize now that I could never be worthy on my own. I could never overcome without His guidance and strength. And because of His salvation through grace, I now long to hear from Him. His truth is the only unshakable foundation in life. His guidance is worth waiting on.
What was I thinking all those years of self-consumption? None of it brought me true peace or contentment. Just a stubborn heart, unwilling to acknowledge that EVERY good and perfect thing is from Him.
Lord God, You are my Saving Truth.
I wait for You all day long!
