Waiting on the Lord for the secret petitions of your heart at God’s set and appointed time can be a long tiring journey. Most times this could be challenging to wait patiently with a heart full of joy, peace and soundness of mind. It might seem like you have been waiting forever but in His eyes its for a while because His timing is different from ours.
The longer it takes for your prayers to be answered at God’s set and appointed time and for its physical manifestation the more challenging, hopeless, distressed and brokenhearted you may become. There comes a tendency to deviate from His original plans, purpose and promises over your life
So how do you wait on Him for God’s set and appointed time. By keeping yours eyes fixed on Him . Setting your mind on Christ and behold His glory (Colossians 3:2, 2 Corinthians 3:16-18). Without complete surrender to God, being open in a place of vulnerability it is difficult to accomplish complete rest and perfect peace as you wait on Him. Keep it real with God, tell Him where it hurts the most, the challenges you experience and permit Him to heal your broken heart, pour His spirit in you that would saturate your heart (Romans 5:5).
God is the redeemer of time and God has set a appointed time for everything. He keeps His promises and watches over His words. He is a covenant keeping God that never fails and is always on time. So if you have been waiting for so long and it seems like nothing is happening. I can guarantee you with confident assurance that there is so much that is happening behind the scene that you are unaware of. Because He makes everything beautiful and marvelous in His sight. He is an awesome God. He would greatly reward those that diligently seek Him.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end Ecclesiastes 3:11.
I pray that the Lord would open your eyes to see the great reward that He has in store for you as you wait on Him. May He remove the veil that has hindered you from comprehending the heights and depths of the greatness of His love. May you walk from strength to strength, glory to glory and grace to grace believing that He is able to do all that He promised you in your secret place beyond your imagination and expectation in Jesus Name Amen.
