There are perils regarding our carnal nature. I was reminded this week of Paul’s words in the book of Romans.
“For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.”
As Christians we attempt to perform the good thing of waiting on the Lord but there is a tug-of-war inside of us. The spirit says be grateful and give thanks, while the flesh is never satisfied. The appetite of our carnal nature is never full. It will not rest in the bed of contentment and say, “Yes, I have everything I need.”
We find the road of waiting much easier when we learn how to say,
“Yes God, I am satisfied with what you have done for me right now.”
