Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4: 4-7).
Today’s Morsel: As born again believers, we should not fret or have anxiety about anything; but in every circumstance and in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving we should continue to make our wants and needs known to God. One of the things we have to learn as children of God is to be patient once we ask Him. We have no need to beg or continue to press Him to try and cause Him to hurry. He already knows what we need before we ask Him. Sometimes we ask God for things, but often we do not have the patience to wait upon Him to deliver. The Bible says, “Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit” (Ecclesiastes 7:8). Therefore, we should rejoice in the Lord while we are waiting on Him to come through. Excitement about our God and the things of God should cause us to rejoice no matter what is going on in our live, as we know He will deliver in His time. If we keep seeking Him, and taking our wants in prayer to Him, the peace that passeth all understanding will keep us. Scripture tells us that He will keep us in perfect peace, when our minds are stayed on Him, because we trust in Him (Isaiah 26:3).
Sing: He’s an on time God, yes He is. He’s an on time God, yes He is. He may not come when you want Him, but He’ll be there right on time; He’s an on time God, yes He is.
