Please take a moment to read the Our Story that this devotional is pulled from by going to this link:   Given the Time.

But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

As we wait on the Lord, and on His timing, it is a comfort to know that we as believers are not alone in the process.  We have a Counselor, someone who is willing to teach us and remind us of the Truth…the Holy Spirit.  But we won’t hear His voice if we aren’t listening for it.  Take a few minutes of silence before the Lord right now and listen for His voice.

We would love for you to read the Our Story that this devotional thought for the day springs from at Given the Time.

Show me Your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior and myhope is in you all day long.

How do we discern what God’s timing is?  It requires us to be looking and listening for His will in our lives…and God invites us to ask for His guidance.  When we have full confidence of what His ways are and in His Truth, we will find that we are filled with hope, even as we wait.

Check out the Our Story this devotional thought for the day comes from at Given the Time.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul.

As we wait on God’s timing in the various areas of our life, it is helpful to remember the positive pictures He uses to represent Himself to us in Scripture.  One of the most vivid pictures is that of Him being a shepherd and we are the precious sheep in His flock.  Thank Him today for being your Good Shepherd.

Take a minute to read the Our Story this devotional thought comes out of at Given the Time.

But I trust in you, O Lord; I say “You are my God.”  My times are in your hands…

Sometimes we may not feel the emotions of trust.  We may not feel confidence in His timing, or we may not understand His timing, yet we are called by God to step forward in faith and take our next steps in trust. Even saying out loud that we trust in God can be a next step.  It can be scary.  It can be hard.  We may not like His timing.  Yet we will find as we articulate this willingness to trust in Him our emotions will often follow.  The reward of trusting God’s timing is well worth the effort!

We invite you to read the story this devotional thought for the day springs from by going to this link:   Given the Time.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:

a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, and time to ear down and time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search, a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
