Hey lovely people
I gotta be so real with you today and tell you that I find it EXTREMELY difficult to wait on God to fulfil some of His promises. But I thank God for being so patient with me (1 Timothy 1:16), because I know that I am a tough student to nurture, and train in the subject area of patience. But I am getting there by Gods precious grace. And it’s wonderful that I can help others learn from my personal experiences (1 Timothy 1:16).
The thing is I don’t believe many of us enjoy waiting. We live in a day and age where we can get what we want, pretty much when we want, at the click of a button. Especially for us who live in major cities such as London, everything is so fast pace, everyone wants things done NOW, and not later. We have Amazon prime (which I loovvvee, next day delivery is simply conveniently beautiful), and there’s also ASOS unlimited next day delivery for a WHOLE year at the price of £9.99…say whhhaaat. The ‘I want it now’ mentality has been ingrained within our minds and such a way of thinking is hard to break free from, but not in possible once you have the help of the Holy Spirit.
The strange thing about me is that I’m completely happy with waiting on God in certain aspects of my life, and in other area’s I’m literally tryin to fight God and take the wheel. Ok well maybe not in the literal sense, but I hope you catch my drift. For example I find it easy to trust God to handle my finances, but when it comes to relationships I like to feel like I have things under control.
But today what God wants you to know is…..
He always keeps His promises, but you just have to trust in His timing! The time for you to obtain your blessing is yet to come. God telling you to wait is a good enough reason for you to wait! Remember God never ever breaks His covenant (Psalm 89:34), and there is nothing which any human being or demon can do, to stop Gods promises from being fulfilled in your life. You just need to learn to WAIT.
Jeremiah 13:1-9: God literally had to use a rotten cloth to show the Israelites how He would rot away their pride. The lesson which I took away from this passage is that it took a ‘LONG TIME’ for the cloth to be where God needed it to be (rotten), in order to be used as an example to the Israelites. So at times there is a need for our blessings to mature (which takes TIME), otherwise we will not fully understand, or appreciate the nature of our blessings. Waiting also gives us the opportunity to prepare ourselves to receive our promises!
Trust me when I say you may not understand the reason for the wait during the season, but just know that it’s for your OWN good. What we must strive to do is seek to bring God glory no matter the circumstance we may find ourselves in.
Love you all
The godly lady 😀
