So many times we try to rush God and do our own things. We try to accomplish something before its perfect time.
To illustrate this message on waiting on the Lord for my children recently I used when we have Dewberries, Southern for Blackberries, that grow in our back yard.
When we pick them before their time they can be sour or bitter, but when we wait and allow them to ripen- wow! Now that is what is really beautiful and tastes amazing.
Just like us- we must remain connected to the Vine- Jesus. We must trust His perfect timing so that we too will always bear the good ripened Fruit that is beautiful and sweet in its time.

The Vine by James Vincent
Are you waiting for your Red Sea to part?
Do you feel like the Israelites, trapped by the powerful Egyptian army on one side and a fierce raging sea on the other? Stop panicking, plotting, worrying and stressing over it. God always intervenes and always provides a way out. His way is always worth the wait.
We place our confidence and trust completely in Him and we simply just need to be still and wait it out.

The Lord will fight for you; you need only be still. ~Exodus 14:14
No trial has overtaken you that is not faced by others. And God is faithful: He will not let you be tried beyond what you are able to bear, but with the trial will also provide a way out so that you may be able to endure it. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:13
