{bits of wisdom}

God’s timing is not ours to command.

if we do not start the fire with the first strike

of our match, we must try again.

God does hear our prayer,

but he may not answer it at the precise time

we have appointed in our won minds.

Instead, He will reveal himself to our seeking

hearts,

though not necessarily when and where we may expect.

Therefore we have a need for perseverance

and steadfast determination in our life of prayer…

may we, therefore, never despair.

God’s time for mercy will come-

in fact, it has aleady come,

if our time for believing has arrived.

Ask in faith without wavering,

but never cease to peitition the King

simply because he has delayed his reply.

Strike the match again and make the sparks fly.

Yet be sure to have your tinder ready,

for you will get a fire before long.

– Charles Spurgeon, Stream in the Desert
