"On Fire": (VIDEOS) Reminder: Sometimes God's Promises Take Time. (But They DO Happen!)
"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men’s hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end."---Ecclesiastes 3:11(AMPC)
If you read the story of Isaac and Rebekah, you'll see that Isaac married Rebekah at 40 (Genesis 25:20) and had Jacob and Esau when he was 60 (Genesis 25:26)! God told him he would have children HOWEVER, it was 20 years between when he was married and when Rebekah conceived.
I'm pretty sure you can sense where I'm going with this...
But I have a "video parable" (Matthew 13:13) to illustrate it too.
Check out the story of Joanna Gaines, co-host of HGTV's Fixer Upper. She also knows what it's like to receive a promise from the Lord *and then* have to wait, sometimes with no other words from the Lord, until its manifestation. Oh, but when it happens...LOOK OUT (Ephesians 3:20-21, I Corinthians 2:9-10)!
AND THEN when he gives you a partner to share the journey with...*all sorts of awesomeness*!!!
Things don't always happen immediately after God calls you to something, but that doesn't mean it won't happen.
GOD CANNOT LIE (Titus 1:2).
TRUST HIM (Proverbs 3:5-6)!
