Ever try to watch a seed grow? The problem is, you can’t.
It remains hidden under the dark garden soil until the seedling’s ready to break the surface and appear. Sometimes things buried in us need to surface!
But, they’ll only do that after we sit still long enough and wait to let them break through. Perhaps they’re deep issues that have undermined our lives for years. Silence forces them to emerge!
You might be asking, “Why isn’t God fulfilling the promise in my life?”
Hint: He’s waiting on you!
You think you’re waiting on God? He’s waiting on you and I to learn that before He brings the answer or solution, He has some things He wants us to develop first; some growth patterns He wants you and I to put into our lives.
God is never in a hurry.
He can do things immediately, but He’s working on a larger agenda. The delays that come into our lives do not destroy God’s purpose.
They fulfill God’s purpose in our life. They make us a better and more humble person.
God WILL make a way where there seems to be no way if we will patiently learn to wait.
“These things won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!” Habakkuk 2:3 TLB
The things you’ve waited for in your life, God will bring to fulfillment! Something is absolutely going on during those times when it feels like nothing is happening or moving ahead.
It’s “growth underground”, deep roots of contentment and confidence are developing in the plan that God has mapped out for you and these will stretch and anchor you into a hope that lasts and sustains through every dry season.
In His Shadow,
