Fret-Free Friday: Fret Buster 14
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
There is a grace God gives when it's His time for us to do His will. There is a grace that He gives us when we are waiting on His will to be done. His grace includes the fruit of patience and the peace of contentment. Patience says, "I can wait for His timing." Contentment says, "I am at peace with the way things are at the moment." Patience allows us to wait without striving; contentment allows us to wait without complaint.
Ask, and you will receive. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened for you. Everyone who asks will receive. The one who searches will find, and for the one who knocks, the door will be opened. If your child asks you for break, would any of you give him a stone? Or if your child asks for a fish, would you give him a snake? Even though you're evil, you know how to give good gifts to your children. So how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him? (Matthew 7:7-11 GW).
Though everyone fails you, God remains faithful (2 Timothy 2:13).
Though everyone speaks lies, God remains true (Romans 3:3-4 GW).
Though all things lose their luster, God remains glorious (2 Corinthians 3:8-11).
Though all would forsake you, God remains with you (Haggai 2:4-5).
Though the world grows exceedingly troubled, God remains in control (John 16:33).
