Music Devotion Day 7: Farther Along//Josh Garrels

This is one of Jake Wingfield's Devotions


Farther Along//Josh Garrels


So, going into this, I had no intention of turning it into some kind of lesson on today’s society and its problems. I have a feeling that’s what this is. It seems like everybody these days needs bigger and faster. Everyone wants the bigger phone, the faster car. We have no patience anymore.


Farther along we’ll know all about it
Farther along we’ll understand why
Cheer up my brothers, live in the sunshine
We’ll understand this, all by and by


“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9)


The Bible tells us in so many places that if we just slow down, have patience, and wait for the right time to act, we will not falter. The answer to most of our frustration today is not acting quickly and rashly like so many do. It’s waiting for the right time to act. The right time is the time God says. At that point, He will lead us in the path He has set for us. If we follow his path, we won’t get lost, we won’t stumble. But it’s not always that easy. That is why we have patience with ourselves.
This is most important: Patience with others, and patience with God.

And one day when the sky rolls back on us
Some rejoice and the others fuss
Cause every knee must bow and tongue confess
That the son of God is forever blessed
His is the kingdom, we’re the guests
So put your voice up to the test
Sing Lord, come soon
