Has God ever given you a promise? Oh, it’s so wonderful, your heart flutters, you sing and rejoice. You are so delighted. If you’re like me, you have it all figured out. You pretty much know what He’s gonna do — Not!
God has never done it my way. The Word tells us His ways are not our ways. His ways are always better. It seems like He isn’t in a hurry. After all, God made time, including all the days and seasons, for us.
Now the excitement is faded… months, years, maybe even decades have passed. You may wonder if you heard from God or not. Perhaps you heard it wrong. ‘Seems to me like things are getting worse instead of better.
You’ve been used, abused, and falsely accused. Surely this wasn’t what God planned: The job played out, the car broke down, the kids or the spouse is strung out. Perhaps you’re still waiting on a significant other, or your first child.
Let me ask you, have you been faithful to God? Are you striving to walk in His ways? If you are, don’t fret. This isn’t the end. It’s just a new chapter. God is faithful and true. He is a God who can be trusted. It will come to pass even greater than you imagined. I do understand, I’ve been waiting on a promise for 37 years.
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, (for He is faithful that promised;)” (Hebrews 10:23)
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,” (Ephesians 3:20)
The only impossible thing is for God to lie — He’s got this!
