I find myself asking the question when is this going to happen or when is that going to happen and than I stop to listen. I know that this is a conversation that I’m not having alone, I’m pretty much asking God when.
To him, time is just a moment and to me time can drag and or go so fast. There’s something here in this brief moment that God wants me to enjoy. Whether it be enjoying the moment I get to sprawl my body all around the bed because I’m not married yet and don’t have to share it, or not having to worry about having to hire someone to fix something in the apartment, that’s what landlords are for. These moments are to be cherished.
There’s a passage that comes to mind, Hebrews 6:13-15, “For when God made a promise to Abraham, since he had no one greater by whom to swear, he swore by himself, saying, “Surely I will bless you and multiply you.” And thus Abraham, having patiently waited, stained the promise.” Abraham waited for so long and at 100 years old, he had his first child a son. In chapter 11 there are other examples of people who had great faith in God for a new home land, crossing the Red sea, seeing the walls of Jericho fall, judgment to fall on the enemy, birth of a deliverer from slavery etc. This all occurred by faith and what strengthened that faith was time.
MIND BLOWING………….I know!!
I’m glad I had this conversation. I’m glad that I’m not alone in this journey because each and everyone is currently waiting on God for a miracle and a blessing. Enjoy the process of being transformed and not wonder when. Stay strong, God hasn’t forgotten about you! Challenge yourself to be like Abraham!
