When an answer to prayer is not quick in coming, we often find ourselves focusing on the prayer itself and on the answer we desire to that prayer. While we know it's good to be positive, and we know God will answer in His time, we need to wait on Him, the one who meets all our needsand He's never late.
It's while we wait that we need to keep our eyes fixed on the Lord, study His Word and find instruction, comfort and encouragement. We need to trust Him and know that He can and will do what He considers best for His children.
There's one thing I have learnt through waiting; it gives me the opportunity to give God the glory for an unwavering assurance that He has all things under control.
Everything is in His hands and there is a time for everything.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:" Verse 11 says, "He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end."
Wait in hope, perseverance, patience and joy because His grace is sufficient for me.
Lord, help us to be patient with answers to prayer. Keep our eyes fixed on You knowing all things will come to pass in Your perfect timing. Amen
