Then you will know that I am the Lord, For they shall not be ashamed who wait for Me.” Isaiah 49:23 New King James Version
In todays world we are inundated with instant, instant internet, instant food, instant phone and tex messages but with
Christians we must learn to be patient, have faith and wait. The Bible is, amongst other things, a history book. Look how long Abraham waited for a son, how long was Joseph a slave in Egypt, how long was Noah shut up in that stinking ark being tossed around before he was delivered, how long did Joshua serve under Moses before becoming a leader?
Therefore was as Christians we have to be patient and understand Jehovah works on His time in His way.
When I recount the times He has molded me it took on average three years and sometimes decades.
God works on His time, not ours. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Think of going to school You attend all year and take the final exam. If you pass you move on to grade three, if you fail you have not learned your lessons well enough and have to repeat (at least that is the logical, though not politically correct thing to do) because you are not ready for the material being taught in grade three.
Then, when we have passed the test we move on to the next level with our walk with Christ.
So too it is with us.
Read in your Bible how many times each of the above (except Noah) failed in their test and had to go through it all over again.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Adonai (God is sovereign) bless me with patience, perseverance and faith to accept Your work, in Your time as You bless me as You burn off the dross that prevents us from enjoying a loving intimate relationship and as You mold me into the child You desire me to be. I humbly request this in the name of He who waited over thirty years to complete His destiny on the cross Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
