Faith is an attitude we adopt between the time God gives us a promise and the moment when it’s for filled. We don’t live with instant gratification of every desire , or are able to instantly solve every painful situation in our lives.
What we can do however, is to search God’s Word for the promises He long for us to have. If we followed the example of Abraham: “Then Abraham waited patiently, and he received what God has promised him.” (Hebrews 6:15).
The timing of God is crucial. We mistakenly assume the moment God reveals His will be everything must happen immediately. Sometimes God gives us a glimpse of what He plans to do in the future. It is critical, however, that we trust Him to carry out His plans in the right timing. The worst thing to do is to take manners into our own hands.”Henry T. and Richard Blackaby
The Lord doesn’t always answer our prayers immediately, but He can and will give us inner reassurance that He knows our need, feels our pain, and is quietly working in ways we are unable to see.
It’s important for us to remember that God never acts prematurely, and He is never late. God’s timing never leaves things unfinished, and it always produces the maximum effect.
