During my younger years, I was someone that always wanted to get things right away, thinking that I was too holy not to deserve anything from God. But God has taught me something that was very difficult to embrace at first (namely: faith and patience), which has been very difficult for me to figure out the importance.
It’s hard and painful sometimes when you don’t get what you want and when you want it, but trust me; God’s timing is always perfect, even when sometimes you get tired of waiting. Our God never failed. He always accomplishes what He says. He knows the limits of your patience and he will act upon before you run out of it.
I’ve also learned that faith is not avoiding obstacles but indeed going through them with Jesus. Also, faith is when you don’t get what you want, but still you are able to say Thank You, LORD! Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
BELIEVE, AND YOU WILL RECEIVE
I believe that you will receive what you have asked for, only if this aligns with God’s will. And God’s plan has always been, to give you what you have asked for and that even beyond your expectations, if only you will have the time to wait on Him, in patience and perseverance. Faith is also to have the ability to give to others what you have been given. Remember what Jesus has done for you in the past. He is faithful and will always do just what He said he will do.
