Testing Part Four: Time Test

image God promised you something; He gave a word. But it isn't coming to past. At least, by outward appearances, this is the case.

Did God forget you? Did He call you and then sideline you?

But you have a verse, you have confirmation in your spirit coupled with the confirmation of godly people. Your whole life is about this specific ministry NOW. So why is God taking so long? What is His problem? You cry out like David:

“How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?  How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and every day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?  Look on me and answer, O LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death…”

*The Time Test builds your patience.

*The Time Test forces you to submit to and trust God to fulfill His promises in His own time and way.

Does God take too long? Does God care? Does He see? Did He forget you?

Or does He deliver with miraculous punctuality? Think back. That's how he'll do it in the future, too.

The experience gained and lessons learned intersect perfectly with the tasks He gives you. Patience is in your court. God works things out, schools you, and then puts you to work.

Some of the work He has you don't even want to know about. You think you do. But if you could see some of the stuff rolling your way, you'd run away. Believe me when I tell you that you want to wait.
