The worlds’ sting can leave us paralyzed and her cruelty can cut to the heart. Sometimes our wounds never fully heal, especially when death robs us of the ones we love. It can sometimes feel like the world is on your shoulders as her weight brings you to your knees, but Jesus calls all those who are weary and burdened to cast their cares upon Him because His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Nothing in this world will ever satisfy us and the only way we will ever have peace is when we are in the center of God’s will. If we keep doing the same thing, we will continue to get the same results, so we always must be in tune with the Spirit especially if He is calling us to something new. Even though the devil cannot see the future, he can see how far we have come and how much we have accomplished, so he desperately wants to stop us before we can make a difference in the kingdom of God. Waiting for something to come to fruition is one of the hardest things to do, especially when what you are waiting for is a promise from God Himself. When dreams are crushed or feel just beyond our reach, it is real easy to become bitter or extremely frustrated. In these times, we must remember that God sets the exact time for His promises and perfect will to come to pass and His timing and ways are perfect.
When promises are delayed, the most important thing we can do is have faith that God already has set the time for our breakthrough. Another thing we must be cognizant of is that our breakthrough may not look exactly how we thought it would and it may be even better than what we could have imagined. When He closes one door, He opens another and oftentimes He is just waiting for us to take a step of faith. God is always working behind the scenes and every once in a while, He will give us a glimpse behind the veil, but even if He doesn’t, we must continue to have faith in His plan. Our faith keeps things moving toward promotion, breakthrough, and blessings beyond our wildest dreams. That is not to say trouble won’t come along the way, but even the hardest of times can be used to shape us. Sometimes we must think outside the four walls because when we only see one way, we limit God and what He can do in and through our lives.
Having peace and joy when you are waiting can feel like a piece of your soul is being held hostage and until His promise is fulfilled you will never be whole again. God’s timing is perfect, so we must trust Him because when we live our lives according to His will and purpose, even the most painful seasons of our lives will be used for our good. Not one tear we shed, not one heartbreaking experience, and not one sleepless night spent crying out to God will ever be wasted. His promises are eternal and He swears by His own name because there is no name higher. He is the Alpha & Omega, the risen Lord and His word always accomplishes the task for which it was sent. Trust God to do the impossible and have faith because He loves you and His heart breaks when yours does and as our Heavenly Father, He has our best interest at heart.
