So often as Christians, we pray prayers and when they aren’t answered right away we begin to grow weary and impatient. What we don’t understand as humans is when we pray for one specific thing, God does 10,000 things to answer our prayer. So while we are waiting, we need to keep walking, because while we are praying for one thing (a baby), God is doing 10,000 to make the one thing happen.
He is sovereign over everything, even our time and schedules. He is more interested in developing character than He is in making sure our schedules run according to plans. It’s during even the small delays that He teaches us obedience, patience, faith, an effective prayer life, and peace all while we rest in His sovereignty.
It’s a daily commitment to look towards God for peace and strength. Not once a year, or weekly, but daily. When we look to Him, the author of our lives, He gives us strength. He renews us. He gives us strength. He lifts us up with wings like eagles.
It’s clear that when we seek God wholeheartedly, He will close doors. But, as many times as He says no, it won’t even compare to the amount of times He tells us yes. We must have an attitude and perspective like David. When God closes doors, we need to praise Him. What if we asked “why me”? every time God blesses us, instead of only asking “why me”? every time He says no? We shouldn’t blame Him for the bad things, but instead give Him glory for the good things.
There is purpose in the waiting. God’s road always leads us somewhere. He doesn’t take us on our journey to waste time or for there to be no purpose. His journeys always have purpose and they always produce character and fruit.
