“We wanted to come to you—even I, Paul, time and again—but Satan hindered us.” -1 THESSALONIANS 2:18

If we will wait patiently before the Lord then He will make us know His will. Almost any mistake can be rectified except presumption and rashness. The flesh is always in a hurry, so we should begin to equate “getting in a hurry” with “getting in the flesh.” Out of one thousand presumptuous acts, nine hundred and ninety-nine of them are flesh.

We want instant relief, instant answers, and instant results, but God wants us to slow down, remain calm, be still, and know that He is God. He wants us to apprehend His Mind, wait for His Spirit, and become acquainted with His ways.
