Today's Scripture: "Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield." Ps 33:20
5554. It's not waiting if you're working a back-up plan. JG
No, know go
It's a delicate balance between using your skill and experience to do something on your own and allowing God to do it through other people—later than sooner. Waiting on God is what every well-intentioned pastor says he believes, but leading a church to actually do it, is a rarity. We are a society that believes having the power to do something is license to do it regardless of what any "nay-sayer" thinks.
It was several years ago that I was blessed by a brother in Christ. Were were working together on a new project and my friend decided to give me his little red truck rather than sell it on the open market. I'd been trusting God to take care of me but never asked for a vehicle, but learned to live without it. I went for years explaining to people why I hadn't bought a vehicle when I could finally say, "God provided it—in His time." It's amazing how much confidence we have in God when we know He is working.
It's not your gifts that excite me, Jesus, but knowing we can share footprints.
