We live in an incredibly fast paced world. It is a world of “me”, “now”, “want”, “desire”. It is too easy to get caught up in this mentality, and get carried off by the pace of society and absorbed into the instant gratification mentality.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Romans 12:12
When we rest in the knowledge that God always taking care of us, we are reminded that there are so many benefits to sticking to His plan rather than going with the flow of the world. Rest your trust in God who provides for all of our needs and gives us the desires of our heart, which when our heart is focused on seeking God never lacks satisfaction, peace and joy. Thirst for the Lord above everything else. It is a challenge we all face as visitors on this earth but remember your home is with God and that take a lot of patience, faithfulness, obedience, and hope.
