One thing I have been learning from God is that I too often try to lead God. I get in front of God and tell Him this is what I want, instead of letting Him lead the way. Too often I am in a hurry. David writes in these two different psalms to wait for the Lord. He advises to let the Lord lead the way and follow Him, instead of leading Him.
Questions for further thought:
1. How do you “lead” God?
2. How do you change the order so that God is leading you?
Challenge: Ask God to show you when you are getting too far ahead of Him. Ask for forgiveness and for Him to show you how to follow His lead.
