impatience

28 07 2008

found this today on kyle’s blog.  thought i’d share it.

“impatience is a form of unbelief. it’s what we begin to feel when we start to doubt the wisdom of God’s timing or the goodness of his guidance…the opposite of impatience is not a glib, superficial denial of frustration. the opposite of impatience is a deepening, ripening, peaceful willingness either to wait for God where you are in the place of obedience, or to persevere at the pace he allows on the road of obedience – to wait in his place, or to go at his pace.” —john piper

was just driving back to my office, heard dr. tony evans say this on the radio and it really struck me…

“wisdom is the ability to discern the true nature of a thing and then implement the will of God concerning it.”
