Psalms 27:14 “Wait on the Lord be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say on the Lord.”
 John 15:4 “Abide in Me, and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can you, except you abide in Me.”
Wait… Abide… In the current day these two words are not welcome, they simply do not fit.  You multi-task, you have fast food, and your tools of communication and entertainment are always at hand.  You stay up late, you rise early, you schedule, you plan, you are always in motion.
Wait… Abide… But you say these words were written 3,000, 2,000 years ago.  You nod in a knowing and understanding way.  Yes, back in those days the pace of life was different, but today…
Wait… Abide…
 “For I am the Lord, I change not.”
“Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
These last days your journey has been focused on being led by God’s Spirit.  Scripture says you are to walk in the Spirit.  God knows the pace and conditions of your life.  But today, most Christians settle for “just a little bit of God, please.”  They are satisfied with just good enough.  They never consider, or desire, that “perfect” will of God.  
God longs to lead you by His Spirit. He will work in your heart as you seek His leading.  Your old nature dies as He lives through you.  He will begin to manifest Himself within You.  You will begin to hear Him speaking into your Spirit words and thoughts that will require you to respond in faith.  To walk with God requires faith.  But to walk with God by faith you must also walk at His pace.  You cannot walk with God while constantly looking at the schedule or the clock.  God will accomplish His work in His way and in His time.
Wait…     Abide…  Allow God to be near.
“Be still and know that I am God.”
