Daily Devotional – 11/4/15 “I shall not want!”

I’ve come to realize on my Christian walk that as long as I know whose I am, I shall not want for nothing. For Psalm 23:1 says, “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.” See, wanting means I have no faith but waiting means my faith has taken over. Wanting means I’m trying to figure it out but waiting means it’s already done. Wanting means my flesh is hungry but waiting means my spirit has been fed. Wanting means it’s in my hands but waiting means it’s in the Master’s hand. Wanting means I’m looking through natural eyes but waiting means I see it in the spirit. Wanting means I try to get even with folk but waiting tells me that vengeance is the Lord’s. Wanting means I look at my checking account and cringe but waiting means I look and believe that greater is coming. Wanting means I need to do it but waiting means it’s being worked out in my favor. Wanting calls me by my name but waiting calls me anointed. Wanting gets me tangled in mess but waiting gets me before great men. Wanting has me looking at my past but waiting has me in praise. Wanting has me thinking about the future but waiting has me blown away by my present.

Oh we are children of the King, we shall lack for nothing. I don’t have to want; all I have to do is wait! Psalm 27:14 “Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” Yea, I know you need some things now but wait. I know you are looking for some things to happen but wait for the bible says in Philippians 4:19, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Baby, waiting doesn’t tell you no, it’s simply preparing you for what’s to come because Lamentations 3:25 says, “The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him.” Oh, there’s joy in waiting if you tap into it for Isaiah 40:31 tells me that, “but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” All you have to do is go from wanting to waiting and see the change in your life. Go from wanting to waiting and see the evidence in your getting. The Lord is our shepherd and we shall not want! #Psalm33Verse20

Daily Devotional – 4/24/14 “Wait!”

I’ve had my notepad up all morning waiting on God to move in my spirit with what He would have me to say to you today and yet nothing came. Then it donned on me, maybe there isn’t anything to say. Maybe today is the day you need to wait on God to move. Just maybe today is the day for you to wait on God to answer you before you make a mistake you can’t get yourself out of, create debt that you can’t erase or even say some stuff you can’t take back. Just wait. Yes, I get it, waiting is hard but so is writing a check your … well, you know. Don’t get to in a hurry and end up falling off into something that you might just drown in. Stop rushing to make a relationship with that person who has showed you over and over that they aren’t worthy of being called girlfriend or boyfriend, let alone husband or wife. Don’t rush to become a parent when you can barely take care of yourself. Just wait! You’ll wait on a bus or a ride yet you’ll rush God. You’ll wait on that dude that’ll come 2 hours late yet you can’t wait on God to move. Chile, relax yourself and wait. Haven’t you heard that all good things come to those who wait? Then what’s the problem? Psalm 27:14 says, “Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.” Psalm 31:24, “Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the LORD!” And Lamentations 3:25-26 sums it all up, “The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.”
