DO NOT BE IN A HURRY! WAIT FOR THE LORD!
⏰Wednesday of the Sixth Week in Ordinary Time 1 (20 Feb 2019)
📕Gen 8:6-13, 20-22; Ps 116:12-13, 14-15, 18-1 (R.v.17a); Mark 8:23-26
🎤DO NOT BE IN A HURRY! WAIT FOR THE LORD!
Everything in our world now is on the move and in speed. Patience is now a forgotten virtue; everyone wants to make it quick. That has led many of us far away from God. But God wants us to follow him in his own way.
After the great flood, it would have been expected that Noah would jump out of the Ark into freedom. But that would have meant that he would jump from the safety of the Ark into the hungry mouth of the flood.
That is what happens when we decide to run faster than our destiny. Noah decided to wait for a sign from God to show that it was safe for him and his household to go out of the Ark. We are required to do same.
God himself is not impatient with us. The gradual healing of the blind man in Mark 8:22-26 is a good description of our relationship with God. Just as the blind man gradually regained his sight, we gradually grow in Christian Maturity and God is always patient with us even in our many failings.
I pray for you today, that your daily strive towards perfection may yield positive results thereby making you a true witness to Christian principles. Amen.
Have a miraculous day ahead. Peace be with you.
