“I looked for someone who might rebuild the wall of righteousness that guards the land. I searched for someone to stand in the gap in the wall so I wouldn’t have to destroy the land, but I found no one.” Ezekiel 22:30 NLT
God does not need anything from humans. He doesn’t need help with things, He doesn’t need praise from us; He doesn’t need our money in the offering plate.
He allows us to join Him as He brings about His plan.
Romans 8:25 But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we wait eagerly for it. (NASB – sent from CadreBible)
I’m trying to have & demonstrate more patience & love. There are numerous passages but this one had escaped my recognition until I re-read it again this morning. How great a picture of the attitude I should have: “… with perseverance … wait[ing] eagerly ….”
I suppose “… with frustration … stomping my feet and whining ….” probably isn’t analogous.
