Slow but Sure
by Charles R. Swindoll
Know that the LORD has
set apart the godly man for Himself;
the LORD hears when I call to Him.
Where are you today on your own journey?
Are you discounting the significance of your days? Are you sighing rather than singing? Are you wondering what good can come from all that you have to live with?
We tend to think that if God is really engaged, He will change things within the next hour or so. Certainly by sundown. Absolutely by the end of the week. But God is not a slave to the human clock. Compared to the works of mankind, He is extremely deliberate and painfully slow.
As religious poet George Herbert wisely penned, "God's mill grinds slow, but sure."
God's hand is not so short that it cannot save, nor is His ear so heavy that He cannot hear. Whether you see Him or not, He is at work in your life this very moment. God specializes in turning the mundane into the meaningful.
One of my longtime friends, Howie Stevenson, often says with a smile, "God moves among the casseroles."
