Wait on your Promise
Have you ever notice when you are in hurry, waiting can seem like an eternity? For example, when you are running late for some reason that red light seems to be taking forever, when we go into a store the lines are never-ending but it’s always when we are in a hurry. However, on the flip side of things when we are not in hurry and we don’t mind waiting for the red light it seems to turn green almost immediately, and when we go in the store it’s like we come right out.
Please understand it may seem somewhat different but it is the same process when we are waiting on our promises from God. Try not to be in a hurry although it seems like you’ve been waiting on that promise for eternity and yes it may be days, months, or even years. I wanted to encourage you don’t give up, keep trusting, and keep waiting on God. If God promised you something it’s going to come to pass. No matter how dire things may seem. My greatest example is the story of Abraham and Sarah and their promised child: Isaac. (NKJV Genesis 21:1-7)
I believe if God brought Abraham and Sarah’s promise to pass and yes it took many, many years. I know that as believers we can rest assured that in due season we shall reap, if we faint not (KJV Galatians 6:9) Wait on your promise, it will be worth it.
