    For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence firm to the end, while it is said, "Today if you will hear his voice, don't harden your hearts, as in the rebellion." For who, when they heard, rebelled? Wasn't it all those who came out of Egypt led by Moses? Hebrew...

  • Surely I have stilled and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with his mother, like a weaned child is my soul within me. Psalms 131:2 WEB.

    Newborn infants tend to cry a lot. Anytime they want something, they cry for it. During this time, the parents are usually quick to look after them, partly out of love and partly to stop the noise. They may whine when you bring them food and when you take it away. They certainly cry when they are hungry, and they always want it immediately.

    As the child grows and becomes weaned, they learn to wait for the food to be prepared. See, a weaned child will tell the parents they are hungry and then wait for it. Children grow to not be as needy and fussy as infants. They are content to play and carry on with their lives until the meal is finally served and they are called to eat.

    You need to reach a point in your walk with the Lord where it no longer matters if you get what you want immediately. You learn to pray and wait confidently instead of giving in to panic and despair. Because no matter what happens, God is still on the throne.

    When something doesn't make sense, pray about it and just put it on the back burner for a while. Don't let it consume the rest of your life and drive those around you crazy. If God hasn't given you the answer yet, learn to wait for it patiently like a weaned child.

    Also, don't focus on one scripture you don't understand so much that you neglect the rest of the Bible. There are a lot of other verses in there to read. Try one of those. Pray about the one that confuses you, and let it rest a while. In His time, I find that God will usually provide the answer. We are big boys and girls now. We can learn to wait for a little.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank You for bringing me this far. Please help me grow in grace. Guide my steps, and help me make the right decisions today. I understand that You will tell me what I need to know when the right time comes, and I trust You to do that. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.' (John 5:14) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

This devotional spoke to me! When I come across a passage in the Bible that I don't understand,  I tend to ruminate over it .I search for answers on the internet,  but the true revelation always comes later.
