Psalm 27:14: “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
Delayed answers are like fire in our bones. It fire tortures us and tests our character as well as our faith in God. It also tests our patience and it either strengthens or weakens. However, the biggest lesson that we learn during these times is to wait upon the Lord. This is how we learn to get rid of other sources of support and put our God as the first and last resource for help. That’s when his true Lordship in our lives is tested. Do we search for human help when answers from God are delayed? Maybe we do, but let us not stop waiting upon the Lord. He is faithful and answer will come.
