There is waiting required in the fulfillment of a need. The need does not just come and then a second later, the provision. There has to be a waiting period- otherwise our relationship to God the Father, the fulfiller of need, would be reduced down to an ATM / debit card. That's not a relationship - that's a transaction.
"Yet I am confident I will see the LORD's goodness while I am here in the land of the living. Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently on the LORD." - Psalm 27:13-14 - Honesty time: I suck at patience. Even more honesty time: I think you do too.
My overarching belief in terms of Christianity // Society // the World is that we all have a role to play. Some have big roles, some have small roles, but in general, each role just as important as the next. Based on the season we are in, we might think we are building God’s kingdom as fast as we can, or sometimes we feel like we are just struggling along to pick up the next brick // mortar.
