The Kitchen Table            Day 45

Today’s Reading:  Ps 128; Numbers 21:4-9; Hebrews 3:1-6

Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in His ways

Psalm 128:1

There are promises for patience and there are patience for promises.  We often wander into God’s will as we walk in God’s word.  There are promises for those who are patient with God.  Impatience takes over when we begin to think our way is better, faster and smarter.  That’s when we get in trouble.  Like the Israelites, we can begin to complain and criticize God’s way and that’s when we get in trouble.  And like the Israelites, we call in our enemy when we begin to complain and criticize our Lord.  The Psalmist writes, “You shall eat of the fruit of your hands…”  (Ps 128:2)  Paul writes in Hebrews 3 to hold fast (tight) to your confidence and hope in Jesus.  The promises of God are for the patient and the patient will see the promises of God.  Wander into God’s will by walking in God’s word and don’t give up.
