Day 1 Advent Meditations

"Don't be impatient for the LORD to act! Travel steadily along his path." Psalm 37:34a NLT

There was a long wait between the Promise of Genesis 3:15 and His arrival in John 1:14. Nevertheless waiting on the LORD and traveling steadily along His path paid off... He came, just as He promised.

The wait seems long now too. The stretch of His arms spans 2000 plus years, but waiting on the LORD is worth it. I learn that from looking back at the anticipation and waiting for His first coming. Though evil seems to prevail all around me, I must not fret. I must not get impatient. I must travel steadily along His path.

"The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness,
but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance
." 2 Peter 3:9 NKJV
"Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how
the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain. You also be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand."
James 5:7-8 NKJV

Day 1 of this Advent I'm remembering Salvation came and He is coming again!
