Be About Your Father's Business

Once again, Liveprayer.com's Daily Devotional speaks to writers--

excerpt:

Let me share with you today what you should be doing while you are waiting
for God to answer you. You press in even closer to the Lord! While you are
waiting for God to respond, you keep praying every day, pray even more.
While you are waiting on God to respond, you keep reading the Word, read
even more. While you are waiting on God to respond, you keep going to
church, go even more. WHILE YOU ARE WAITING ON GOD TO RESPOND YOU CONTINUE
TO BE ABOUT YOUR FATHER'S BUSINESS, SINCE, AS YOU ARE ABOUT HIS BUSINESS HE
WILL BE ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS!

There is your priceless gem for the day. Read it again. Read it over and
over. WHILE YOU ARE WAITING ON GOD TO RESPOND YOU CONTINUE TO BE ABOUT YOUR
FATHER'S BUSINESS, SINCE, AS YOU ARE ABOUT HIS BUSINESS HE WILL BE ABOUT
YOUR BUSINESS!

I know many of you today are living
on life's edge because you have great needs you have brought to God and are
simply waiting on Him to respond. While satan will fill you with his lies,
let me give you some TRUTH today. God loves you so much. God cares about you
and everything that goes on in your life. God is your hope and rock in the
good times and bad. God hears your cries. God is able to meet every need you
will ever have in this life. God's timing is not our timing, but God is
never too early or too late.

I know how frustrated you are waiting for God to respond. The key to finding
peace as you wait is to know that God knows you and your needs better than
you do. Press into the Lord during this time you are waiting. Be about Gods'
business. Keep serving Him faithfully. As you are obedient and faithful in
your service, you will wake up one day and realize God has responded. It may
not be the exact way you wanted, it may not be the exact answer you wanted,
but God will respond.
