God’s Delay… is NOT His Denial…
It’s HIS Plan at Work
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts”
God delays so you can demonstrate your faith.
Galatians 6:9 tells you how to wait for God: “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
St. Paul, I implore you, I challenge you to respond to God’s delay with faith, not doubt. God has guaranteed a harvest, and it will arrive at the proper time. Hebrews 10:36 says, “You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.”
To persevere in your season of delay…. is to endure with an expectation of victory. Knowing that God is working it out on your behalf.
God delays so he can be glorified in the end.
When Lazarus was sick, Jesus purposefully delayed in going to him. During the delay Lazarus died. Jesus ultimately resurrected Lazarus, which was a manifestation of Jesus’s glory for all to see.
We Christians are still talking about this miracle today. God’s miracles validate his word.
In John 11:40, at the end of the Lazarus story, Jesus says, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?”
WHEN WE BRING OUR REQUESTS BEFORE GOD, WE NEED TO REMEMBER THAT WE ARE SPEAKING TO OUR FATHER.
In our season of delay, we must remember that GOD OUR FATHER HAS US ON HIS MIND, US IN HIS HEART and HE HAS ALREADY PROVEN HE HAS US AS HIS PRIORITY… WHEN HE GAVE US HIS SON JESUS TO COVER EVERY STAGE OF OUR WAITING AND BECOMING!
DISAPPOINTMENT CAN BE HIS APPOINTMENT!... SO DON’T GIVE UP!
In Grace and Love,
