If you promise a child that you will take them to get ice cream, they will immediately become excited and will not let you breath until you take them to get it. If you take long, they will become extremely impatient and cry and complain until they get what you promised them.
That’s normal for children, because they are not mature. But you’d expect a mature adult to wait patiently. When God makes us a promise, or when you make a request to God, you must learn to wait patiently.
King David said,
I waited patiently for the Lord;
And He inclined to me,
And heard my cry. Psalm 40:1
Do you believe in God? I’m sure you’ll say yes. Do you trust in God? I’m sure you’ll say yes. But let me ask you one more question… do you wait patiently for God?
I am not teaching you to be complacent or to just allow things to go anyhow. But you must be patient enough to wait on God without losing trust. Your blessing will come in the right time, if you are patient.
Don’t allow anxiety to enter in and cause you to lose trust. If you do that, you are allowing the enemy to win.
May the God of the Bible bless you
