Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him. Psalm 37:7 New King James Version
I always thought of myself as a patient man until becoming a Christian. To rest in the Lord is to not worry about your circumstances but have faith and confidence in Him.
Jehovah knows the right time, place and circumstances to answer your prayers.
We must also be obedient to His answer.
I prayed many times for the Lord to move a womans heart to accept a proposal of marriage only to be shot down every time. I was crushed but in time it was revealed they would have been the wives from hell. I am still single in my late fifties. I do not know if I will ever get married and the more I live the less the desire there is for a marriage.
There have been so many times I prayed for something that the Lord refused to give me. In hindsight I am glad every time.
The more you grow in Christ the more patient you become. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Then there are circumstances where it took decades for the answer to come to fruitation. It was not that Jehovah was slow to answer but that He was slowly creating the right time and circumstances fr it to come to fruitation.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah-Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) for blessing me with Your divine strength to carry on praying for Your blessings when there was no sign of them being answered. I praise You in the name of He who never stopped praying Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
