No Reason to Hurry

By   •   December 4   •   Topics:

This is a high-strung, neurotic, impatient age. We hurry when there is no reason to hurry—just to be hurrying. This fast-paced age has produced more problems and less morality than previous generations, and it has given all of us jangled nerves. Impatience has produced a new crop of broken homes, or more new ulcers, and has set the stage for more world wars.

See what the Bible says about impatience.

Prayer for the day

May my heart be still amid all the turmoil, as I remember Your patience with me, Lord Jesus.

    Unfortunately, I am a work in progress. This is an area that I could stand to improve myself. Although I am generally patient with people, I’m not always as patient at lineups and in various other situations. We live in a fast-paced society and are often impatient with trivial matters. With God’s help, I hope to overcome this annoying issue.

    I would be very thankful if I could receive the “The Daily Devotion,” on my cell phone. God bless you, and keep up the great work.

    Although I am willing to become a follower, I already give to our church. see my husband is a part time minister for a small church here in our area, this church was subject to close their doors when we got called to help try and keep them going. so far we have been having over 50% of our members attend, considering we only have 17 members. that alone is a blessing. Please pray for our church and for my husband and I. we have been under demonic attacks constantly ever since we began this journey. I truly believe that God will continue to bless us as long as we do for him. Happy new year.

    The past year and a half I was very consumed with the presidential election and it was starting to make me feel very anxious. I was worried for my family, my grand children and the future of America. I’m relieved that it’s finally over and I’m pleased at the outcome. Although I hadn’t gone to church in years, I did attend Mr. Graham’s Capitol prayer meeting when he came to my state. This article was so appropriate for me today. I went to church this morning for the first time in years. And it felt great!!!

    I believe man only builds things and discovers things, but really creates nothing except the atmosphere of love and security, or chaos and confusion based upon who that man has chosen and is allowing to be Lord of his life.

    Thank God for his extraordinary patience with me , with regard to patience. I remain a work in progress. I see some improvement, however I have a ways to go. I am determined with his help to become more patient. Thank you Lord Jesus for your loving ( continued) patience with this slow learner.
