Today as I was praying for the nations and the unfolding political issues around our Brexit from the EU, this quote was quickened to me,
“BE ASSURED that if God waits longer than you could wish, IT IS ONLY to make the blessing DOUBLY precious,” Andrew Murray.
What good is faith unless it is tested?
The testing of our faith produces steadfastness, resist running from situations that come to test your faith, but rather run towards that which will produce even greater life and abundance….!
“God is a wise husbandman, who “waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it (James 5:7). He cannot gather the fruit until it is ripe. He knows when we are spiritually ready to receive the blessing to our profit and His glory. Waiting in the sunshine of His love is what will ripen the soul for His blessing. Waiting under the cloud of trial, that breaks in showers of blessing, is as necessary. Be assured that if God waits longer than you could wish, it is only to make the blessing doubly precious. God waited four thousand years, until the fullness of time, before He sent His Son. Our times are in His hands. He will avenge His elect speedily. He will make haste for our help and not delay one hour too long.”
― Andrew Murray, Waiting on God.
Blessings to you all.
