“But God ’s not finished. He’s waiting around to be gracious to you. He’s gathering strength to show mercy to you. God takes the time to do everything right—everything. Those who wait around for him are the lucky ones.”
Isaiah 30:18 MSG
With a verse like this you wonder what the hurry is about. Look at it this way, you are on the express and experiencing gridlock, ideally you should be worried, especially if you have an appointment, but you are not working alone. You have a partner in a chopper telling you that the gridlock is not a stretch but the nearest bus stop that has a bad road and after that it’s free! With that piece of information your mind is at rest. Something similar happened to me yesterday but no chopper involved though, the road just had a bad patch and after that bit it was free.
Wondering what this is about? When going through life you have an appointment with destiny, a little hiccup on the way will not bother you, reason being, you have a God who is taking care of EVERYTHING in your life and He takes His time to ensure His plan for you has the perfect execution. Enjoy the reward of waiting and just like the soundtrack in the film fireproof “I’ll serve You while I’m waiting…” While waiting on the Lord learn the lessons of the stage, as that will prepare you for your advancement, nobody said it’d be easy but everyone knows it will be worth it. Try not to cut corners for you to advance, it defeats the purpose of God setting the table for you in the presence of your enemies.
Are you single like me? Enjoy and learn the lessons you can learn while being single, career progression is what you want? Learn the discipline of your stage, learn to make a difference in your sphere, you’d be shocked how much this will prepare you for the next stage of God’s plan…i am trying to be patient and learn the lessons of this stage i am, you should try that too
