Don't Wrestle, But Nestle!

Updated: Jul 18, 2021

The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to keep still.”

Exodus 14:14 NRSV

We all go through different struggles in life, the events are different but the pattern is quite the same. I always believe that one of the most difficult ones are those situations where we have to wait for the result. In a fast paced world, it is indeed really hard to wait! It could be waiting for a job, promotion, school, college, marriage, baby, or even just sufficient money to pay the bills. Sometimes miracles take place and sometimes we have to face the situation. We cannot rush our miracles to accommodate our desire, for the most crucial part in God's plan is the waiting period.

The interval between our prayers and miracles is the most difficult and refining time of our lives. It differs according to our faith and matures us according to our situation. We don’t have to fight our way through, we have to sit back and relax as God leads. Let God do His work, it's much easier that way. Don’t Wrestle, But Nestle!

One of my favorite short stories written by Paul Coelho, “The Lesson of the Butterfly” (Link Below - Must Read), illuminates how struggles and hardships could shape an individual, strengthening the core in order to face the challenges ahead. Likewise, it’s always good if we don’t rush but rather wait and be fully grown to grasp the strength that is needed for the journey ahead.

Be still, and know that I am God!

Psalms 46:10 NRSV

Prayer For Patience

Lord, give me the strength to wait upon Your promises. Help me to stay patient when the end goal seems so far out of reach. Just as I must wait for Your revelation, I pray that I learn to wait patiently with understanding for all things to come to pass in my life. Walk between us today. Speak peace into our hearts. Give us an infinite amount of patience when it comes to understanding.

It is so by Faith and by Faith so it is. AMEN❣
