We grow up in a world where everything needs to happen quickly. “I want it now” or “Get the new I phone now”. That is called consumerism culture! We ought to be content with the things that God gives us. Not long for things of this world, because He knows our heart and will provide accordingly. We ought to be content in the Lord, because godliness with contentment is great gain.
So let us not cling to the things of this world, saying “I want this” or “I want that. Let us cling to the things of the Lord.
Let go of the things of the world and be a light for God. Why does that seem so odd for people? Because we want to see things, and to believe and be a light for God is sometimes a hard concept to understand. He made us full of life and passion for His name, let us shine it before His people.
Let us not get impatient with God, but be in the waiting.
