Being patient with God’s plan

I just have to wait for God. Random image for the post.

Here’s something from my morning devotional readings:

Evil and injustice seem to have the upper hand in the world. LikeHabakkuk, Christians often feel angry and discouraged as they see what goes on. Habakkuk complained vigorously to God about the situation. God’s answer to Habakkuk is the same answer he would give us: “Be patient! I will work out my plans in my perfect timing.” It isn’t easy to be patient, but it helps to remember that God hates sin even more than we do. Punishment of sin will certainly come. As God told Habakkuk, “Wait patiently.” To trust God fully means to trust him even when we don’t understand why events occur as they do.

This is taken from this verse:

“This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” — Habakkuk 2:3 NLT

How many times in my life have I tried so hard to do things on my own. I just need to accept what I can do and believe God will take care of everything else when the time is right.
