Be patient. Everything is coming together.
Waiting is hard at any time; but when days, weeks, or even months pass and our prayers seem to go unanswered, it's easy to feel God has forgotten us. Perhaps we can struggle through the day with its distractions, but at night it's doubly difficult to deal with our anxious thoughts. Worries loom large, and the dark hours seem endless. Utter weariness makes it look impossible to face the new day.
A number of Bible stories center on waiting: Abraham waiting for a child (Genesis 12-21). The Israelites waiting for deliverance from Egypt. Prophets waiting for the fulfillment of their own predictions. The disciples waiting for Jesus' final words at the end of Revelation are "I am coming quickly," followed by an urgent echoing prayer, "Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! (Revelation 22:20)." For this, we still wait.
Satan whispers that God has forgotten us, and that things will never change. We may be tempted to give in to despair. Why bother to read the Bible or to pray Why make the effort to worship with fellow believers in Christ? But we need our spiritual lifelines most when we're waiting. They help to hold us steady in the flow of God's love and to become sensitive to His Spirit.
Here's the question I ask myself: As we wait, why are we so often fearful and anxious? Waiting tries our faith and so we wait in hope. God is worth waiting for; His time is always best.
God may delay our request, but He will never disappoint our trust. No prayer is too small for our Lord to handle.
To the person reading this (You). I know you're either worried, overwhelmed, struggling in some way or questioning God. But listen, He loves you and has a plan to bring you out of this stronger, brighter and better than you were before. Trust the process. Trust and have faith in Him.
Chase your dreams and goals in life! As long as you're breathing, there's still hope! Pray, always ask God for wisdom, direction and guidance! Fighting! You can do it! We can do it!
