Green does not always mean go.

After a near-death experience, a log truck runs red light and blasts through the intersection I was entering, a lady called me and shared with me this statement. The Lord gave her that after seeing many perish and hurt by those running red lights. 

There is wisdom in waiting.   This direction is implicit in the instructions of Jesus in this statement he makes a number of times.

Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.  Mark 14:38

I know that patience is not a virtue that I possess naturally.   However, I have learned over time that patience is a virtue that we do begin to acquire over time.

“For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.” Hebrews 10:36

Noah, when he and his family had been on the Ark for a very long time, they did not just get off the boat.
Opening a Window
To test the timing, 
Four times Noah opened a window looking for a sign.
Three times he sent a dove.
On the fourth time, he finally knew, it’s time.
Watch and Pray.
It’s not no, just not yet.

Seeking God’s will and his timing is so vitally important to us.

Watch and Pray.

In Him, By Him, Through Him,
