Slow is Good

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
This morning God seemed very silent as to my next step. I wrestled with it to the point I went into Chris mode. I started doing stuff. All good stuff, but was it His best stuff?
I ended up feeling like a complete failure…then Jesus stepped in. I was prayer walking when I saw the oddest thing. I stopped at the chain link fence and took a picture.
It’s one of those orange security cones highway workers use to get traffic to slow down or switch lanes to insure their safety while working. The picture doesn’t do it justice as I couldn’t zoom in any closer with my phone camera. A tree sprouted out of a caution cone!
Life can come from slowing down. Our God sees around the corner of time. Because of this truth, He can tell us to slow down or speed up, to be quiet still or roar and go for it. All for our own good!
Isaiah 30:15b states, “In quietness and in trust is your strength.” Sometimes it takes great strength to be still and trust in what God is saying to do, which in this case was to shut up and wait. God sees the future. He knows what is best for us and will, at times, tell us to sit still. Angels see and get it. Will you?
