I want patience and I want it NOW!

Want to make God laugh? Tell Him your plans!!

The spiritual journey is about learning to surrender our agenda and tune into God's instead. Have you ever been in a meeting where it was hijacked by someone's own agenda?!

We need to lay down personal agendas and allow Jesus’ agenda to surface wherever we are- at home, at work, at church or at play.

Nebuchadnezzar didn't get the idea- try reading what happened to him in Daniel 1-4.

Daniel 4:25, 35-37
You will be driven away from human company and live with the wild animals. You will graze on grass like an ox. You will be soaked in heaven's dew. This will go on for seven seasons, and you will learn that the High God rules over human kingdoms and that he arranges all kingdom affairs.

"At the end of the seven years, I, Nebuchadnezzar, looked to heaven. I blessed the High God, thanking and glorifying God, who lives forever:

"His sovereign rule lasts and lasts, his kingdom never declines and falls. Life on this earth doesn't add up to much, but God's heavenly army keeps everything going. No one can interrupt his work, no one can call his rule into question.

"At the same time that I was given back my mind, I was also given back my majesty and splendor, making my kingdom shine. All the leaders and important people came looking for me. I was reestablished as king in my kingdom and became greater than ever. And that's why I'm singing—I, Nebuchadnezzar—singing and praising the King of Heaven:

"Everything he does is right, and he does it the right way. He knows how to turn a proud person into a humble man or woman."
