KEY VERSELeviticus 24:12 (Moses waits on God)
They kept the man in custody until the Lord’s will in the matter should become clear to them.

I am a God who speaks. Ask me for wisdom. I am a God who delivers. Seek me, and I will provide. I am a God who guides. Honor me and my name by waiting for my direction. Just as lamps burned continually in the tabernacle, I want our relationship to shine for all to see. I want it to be active and meaningful. Take time to develop our relationship. Invest in it, care for it, and make it a priority.

While I love the time we spend together, I want you to value our relationship at work, school, or in your home. So do not lash out in anger towards others or minimize another person’s value. You honor me when you honor those you see each day. You love me when you love them. You can grow your relationships—with me and others—when you are slow to speak, slow to become angry, and quick to listen.

Be patient. Take time to seek God today. Before (or after) a meal, be still and wait and listen to God.
