Standing here at this beautiful place, I cannot imagine how it took so long to be here. On the far right side I see the beauty of the well kept but strangely calm flower beds, they seem as if whispering to me, “you stood the wait test”.
I am so overwhelmed by this beauty and as I walk on this concrete pavement towards the other side of my beautiful place I see words written on a billboard that stands some distance away “THE WAIT TEST”. OH! I am awakened by someone knocking on the neighbor’s door, it was just a dream, I give a sigh! But this is not JUST a dream; it is the story of life.
How many times have we stood the wait test? Be it in waiting for someone to come or better still waiting on what we expect in life, our dreams or our aspirations?
It is funny how God has taken me through so many wait tests and I still cling on to him despite sometimes feeling He has forgotten about me. He is God and that’s why he says He won’t forsake us.
Will you stand the wait test? You remember the days when you had been promised by someone that they will give you something you would love to have? You waited patiently and hoped they will give it to you as soon as possible, and every time they visited you there you were curious to see if they honored their promise.
What about if they failed to give what they promised? You got discouraged and felt cheated. Now that is a human being, he/she can cheat but God will never cheat, no matter what His promises are YES and A BIG AMEN.
You waited and waited upon something you expected God had promised, because God may not speak to all of us in dreams or visions, He may put a passion in our heart as a sign of Him promising He will grow that passion in you into a big thing that will take you places. Ask yourself today, as much as God put that passion in your heart, how will it benefit God?
If you got a promise put in your heart in a form of a passion, learn how to use it for God’s glory. Sometimes God won’t fulfill our desires that He put in our heart because you want to use that desire selfishly in a way it won’t glorify God.
As you wait on God to fulfill His promise, learn to accept God’s molding so that eventually when He makes the dream come true, you will absolutely do it for His glory
STAND THE WAIT TEST.
