Don't Settle For A Burger


Jeremiah 33:3 Call to Me, and I will answer you, and I will show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.

In today's society, the fast food industry is making billions. It's slogans are things like "Have it your way" and "Have it hot and have it now".  How easy it is for us to fall into this "fast food mentality".  It has almost become who we are.  But in God's kingdom there's no fast food.  We can't always have it our way and now.  When we are caught up in this fast food mentality, we lose the true meaning of patience.  True patience is the ability to wait on The Lord through trials without complaining and worrying; it is to be tested and persevere through trial.

We need to be patiently waiting on The Lord to answer us in a new way!  We cannot shortcut the things of God.  If we want a deeper anointing of the Spirit in our lives, we need to avoid this fast food mentality.  We cannot have a deeper walk with The Lord without spending time in His Word, without spending time in intimate prayer, without walking in repentance and humility, and practicing a life of holiness.  Is this a tall order?  You bet it is, but when we are focused on God and patiently waiting on Him to answer He will prepare blessings beyond our imagination!

Let's not settle for a hamburger, fries and coke when The Lord has a delicious, heavenly feast prepared for us!
