God is focused on who we are versus what we do. It’s not that He doesn’t care about our doing; it’s simply that out of our being comes doing. We are more prone toward activity and doing. God is more concerned with our being a person who is pleasing to Him. This requires that we seek Him and His ways -- which often translates into waiting on Him for His agenda. Our plan typically differs from God’s. It is a big mistake to redefine God as a genie who exists to grant our every whim -- or to help us achieve our personal goals. God’s ways are not man’s ways! We must not get ahead of God; we must seek and stay on His agenda. That's the key to true happiness.
