It is my constant prayer that all is as The LORD has spoken without delay!
Scripture makes it clear that our Heavenly Father hears and answers prayer. Yet we all experience times when, though we pray for God to act right away, God does not. What are some reasons for the delay?
Yet minds and prayers can become so fixed upon a need that our gaze shifts away from Him. The Father may delay His answer until we refocus on Him.
In other situations, God waits because the timing is not right for granting our request. We see ‘short’ our vision as far ahead is in no way comparable to The knowledge of God! Mind you, The Word states that you were known in your mother’s womb! This is a scary concept. ALL our actions are known? Where we go, what we do, our acts are not that difficult to figure out! We are not figured out! We are known!
Who, what and where you are is for reason. There will be inexplicable acts that occur. Life goes on! I say that lacsadaically. Where do you think testimonies are from?
Perhaps certain events must happen first, or people’s thinking needs to be changed.
Amen in Jesus’ name. What tends to ‘trip’ believers up is “waiting”. Amazingly, that means so much!
