Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
2 Peter 3:8-14
Sometimes we are so impatient. We pray, and expect God’s response (that is, God’s fulfilment of my vision, my desires immediately. This season of Advent, though, reminds us to wait for God to unfold his will, which is the fullness of our humanity, according to his timing. How are we to wait for this unfolding of God’s will? Simply by living a godly life and striving to be found at peace by him – at peace with others and with myself through forgiveness and reconciliation, with humility and with patience. Today how am I waiting for God? How will I ‘dwell’ in godliness and peace? Holy Spirit, help me dwell in godliness and peace as I wait for you.
A highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Holy Way... (Isaiah 35:8)
Faith liberates. It liberates love and hope. If I am free to love and free to hope, what more do I want of life?
