Sometimes, I forget that every day on a fast will not be a mind blowing, spirit awakening day full of wonder and amazement. This was one of those days.
I think I thought the first day of blocking secular TV and music would be different. I thought I would experience God in a different way. Well, that didn’t happen.
I spent most of the day reminding Him of his promises regarding my career. I have become quite tired of the current state of my life. This fatigue is only due to my desire to move into vision. However, I cannot allow this fatigue to become an excuse for impatience. At the end of the day, I am still blessed with all the necessities of life. My jobs are not horrible. In fact, I don’t mind what I do at all. It’s just not what God promised. So I constantly reminded Him of his own words.
“The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.” -1 Thessolonians 5:24 NIV
“…for he is faithful that promised” -Hebrews 10:23 KJV
So, I’m thinking if He promised, he will do it. Then, God gave me a clapback.
“For you have need of patience, that after you have done the will of God, ye may receive the promise.” -Hebrews 10:36 NKJV
OK. There’s stuff on my end that I have to do too. Patience. Obedience.
