23rd JANUARY 2020“Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you; And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for Him.” – Isaiah 30:18
You probably have heard that God is a last-minute God and that He performs miracle at the last minute when everyone thinks that the chapter is closed. Each time we write about this topic, it looks so beautiful on paper, but the experience we go through during periods of trial could be painful and harrowing; so many people have derailed and done some negative and ungodly things because they were unable to wait for God till the last minute. It is not really that God stretches our faith to the end before He performs His miracles. It’s just that in between our waiting on Him and His answering, He expects us to do certain things and take certain steps in order for Him to roll out His miracles. We usually delay in these aspects. Therefore, we must listen carefully to God during this period we are waiting on Him. There is something very important that God is saying to us this period, which we must quickly grab in order to move to the next level of healing or achievement. This is a time to trust God more and be submissive to Him. Nevertheless, if you are coming late to God with that age-long problem, have faith and believe in Him for whom He is. He will definitely do that which only He can do as God. The word of God is telling you today to listen carefully to hear from God during periods of waiting and take His lead in order that He may answer us in good time. It is not all about prayers all the time; you have to put action to prayers to get results. Timely obedient to God during periods of waiting would quicken Healing or bring about miracles in good time. Therefore, God is a God of possibilities and full of mercy. He is always there for us at any time, even up till the last minute.
Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I trust and put my faith in you without wavering. Each time I looked up to the Hills, I am confident you are in control of all my affairs because you neither sleep nor slumber. Lord, I forgive all those who offended me this minute, and I offer myself unto thee as a living sacrifice. Therefore, I declare I am fit and well-positioned to receive from you NOW. Thank you, father, for answered prayers. AMEN.
