Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
Timeless words to a time lost generation…
In our “gotta have it now” day to day life patience is running close to becoming extinct. Faster computers, faster food, faster money transfers, accelerated production needs, faster transportation all weave their way into our lives consuming our serenity leaving in its place high levels of stress.
We speak of “New York minutes” and in some places measure time in nanoseconds. It seems as if our attempts to build a better world has backfired. It seems as if we’ve created a monster that is quickly gnawing away our peace and tranquility.
One day as a youngster my dad and I were working on a wood project and he was explaining to me about how to use tools, “when you use tools for what they are not meant to be used for they will break,” I recall him saying. That same principle applies to us when we live our lives in a manner in which the Creator has not created us we will break down.
I suspect the Psalmist knew nothing of our lifestyle but he must have had some prophetic insight because Psalm 62 addresses each of us on our superfast highway to oblivion.
“Patiently wait for God alone, my soul! For he is the one who gives me confidence. He alone is my protector and deliverer. He is my refuge; I will not be upended. God delivers me and exalts me; God is my strong protector and my shelter. Trust in him at all times, you people! Pour out your hearts before him! God is our shelter! (Selah)” (Psalm 62:5–8, The NET Bible)
Timeless words from a timeless book for a time lost generation!
Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!
Grace and PEACE, Amen!

The LORD gives strength to those who are weary… But those who trust the LORD will find new strength…” (Isaiah 40:29, 31 CEV)
