Edifier du Jour-Psalm 37:4-9(NASB)
4 Delight yourself in the LORD; And He will give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it. 6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light And your judgment as the noonday. 7 Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes. 8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath; Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing. 9 For evildoers will be cut off, But those who wait for the LORD, they will inherit the land.
In a culture with such a short attention span, it's hard to sit still still and hear from God. Prayer is a two-way communication, and we tend to want to make it a monologue. Be patient. Spend a few minutes listening to what God might be saying. Don't expect Him to respond in a audible, basso profundo James Earl Jones voice, but through the Holy Spirit interacting with your spirit softly. As Ganns put it earlier today (the post will say 10:22 AM, but remember he's ~13 hours ahead of me) "Have y'all talked to God this morning? Great! Now, how about taking three minutes of your time to allow Him to talk back?" Also, God doesn't always work on your schedule. He doesn't always come when you want Him to, but He always comes on time. Just remember what they say in the music shop-"If you can't play the guitar, you shouldn't fret." Even if you can play the guitar, you can have stop worrying and have confidence that God will deliver you from the things that aren't in His plan in due time.
