Exodus 32:7-8 – The LORD said to Moses, “Go down at once! Your people, whom you brought up out of the land of Egypt, have acted perversely; they have been quick to turn aside from the way that I commanded them; they have cast for themselves an image of a calf, and have worshiped it and sacrificed to it, and said, ‘These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt!’”
I don’t think of us as patient people in general. To varying degrees, we want life to go our way when we want it…but God’s time may not be our time.
Gracious God, grant each of us more patience so that we can see your plan unfold before us. Amen.
