I must confess that I suffer from a terrible disease — impatience! Unfortunately, I am sure that there are many of us that suffer from the same disease. We are so busy, so much to do, that we run full speed to get from point A to point B.
In my reading today Acts 1:23-26 states “23 And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. 24 And they prayed and said, “You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen 25 to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.” 26 And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles.” The Apostles were seeking to replace Judas Iscariot who we all know had betrayed Jesus and hung himself. The Apostles did the right thing — they prayed and sought counsel from God.
It is a good reminder to me and all of us that we cannot run in front of God. Just as the Apostles faithfully waited upon the Lord for direction and decision, we too must seek our answers from God first, rather than ask God to keep up with us. Our first step in making our decisions should be to go to God in prayer.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
