I was in a hurry to drive home today. I came to a YIELD sign. There was a lot of traffic, and as I waited and stared at that big triangular sign, my mind drifted to how much I want my life to be fully YIELDED to God. Then as I waited still longer it hit me: to YIELD is to wait patiently. If I want to be fully YIELDED to God, I will have periods of waiting on Him. When I patiently listen, I begin to hear His voice. When I stop scurrying around doing what I think I should be doing, I finally learn what He wants me to do. Sometimes the wait can be excruciatingly long, but it is still best to wait on the Lord. That is how I gain the biggest blessings!
Psalm 40:1: "I waited patiently for the LORD; he inclined to me and heard my cry."
