No one ever bakes a cake, reads the instructions, and then decides, (even though the instructions say to let the cake bake for 1 hour), to take the cake out of the oven after only 30 minutes of baking. For water to become ice cubes, it has to go through a phase transition, where a liquid turns into a solid when its temperature is lowered below its freezing point. To become a butterfly, you must first live as a caterpillar. Don’t rush what God is clearly trying to perfect.
Don’t rush what God is clearly trying to perfect.
What we need is patience because the harvest does not come immediately after the seed is sown. Patience is having the ability to endure or tolerate delay or suffering without getting angry or giving up hope.
Hope seen is not hope at all, so waiting is tied to what you know for sure about God but can’t see. Many of us have come to a very difficult point in our lives where waiting is the season we are currently in.
Some lessons we will learn will only come by way of experience, and if you are still complaining about the storm, you are not ready yet. If you still see your situation as trouble, you are not ready yet. If you are able to blame others for why you are not where you think you should be, you are not ready yet.
Learn to be content in every season; this will take your focus off the wait and give you the endurance to enjoy the ride. When you enjoy the process, you have given God permission to take the wheel, and you surrender to being the passenger. When you surrender your will, you are telling God that you trust His direction and also His timing.
Prayer: God, I trust Your decisions for my life. I believe Your plan is the best plan. Forgive me for growing weary; however, I will not faint. Your plan for my life includes prosperity and hope, in Jesus Name. Amen.
