Baby Talk

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

Babies tend to cry a lot. Anytime they want something, they begin to cry. During this time, the parents are usually quick to look after them, partly out of love and partly to stop the noise. I have seen them cry when you bring them food, and then cry when you take it away. They certainly cry when they are hungry, and they always want it right now.

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

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 into panic and despair. No matter what happens, God is still on the throne.

When something doesn't make sense, pray about it and put it on a 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.

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