Wait for and confidently expect the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord. Psalm 27:14 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
Waiting is an exercise in patience and trust in the Lord.
Sometimes it takes a day, some times it takes months, sometimes it takes years and some times it takes decades for the Lord to complete His work.
It is not dependent upon the Lord how long it takes for fruition of prayers to occur.
It depends upon the right time and place and for the soul you are praying for to become receptive to the Lords call.
For me it took over twenty years for a certain prayer to come to completion.
Even now it still has not been fully answered but is progressing quite nicely. Now even when the prayer is not answered the way you desire it will still be answered.
“Joseph waited 15 years. Abraham waited 25 years. Moses waited 40 years. Jesus waited 30 years. If God is making you wait, you’re in very good company.” Anonymous
So say you are praying for a home in a nice neighborhood but all’s you get is something in the poor section of town. While there you are ministering to those in need. Upon reflection years later you realize that Jehovah chose the right place for you and you would not change places if the house in the nice neighborhood were to be offered to you for free.
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for not providing for me what I am not ready to receive.
Thank you for delivering when it is the proper time and the proper place.
I jubilantly praise You in the name of He who came at just the right time to save the world Jesus Christ. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day. Joseph a son of Jehovah
