“Know of a surety that thy seed shall be sojourners in a land that is not theirs; . . . they shall afflict them four hundred years; . . . and afterward, they shall come out with great substance” (Genesis 15:12-14).
An assured part of God’s pledged blessing to us is delay and suffering. A delay in Abram’s own lifetime that seemed to put God’s pledge beyond fulfillment was followed by a seemingly unendurable delay of Abram’s descendants. But it was only a delay: they “came out with great substance.” The pledge was redeemed.
God is going to test me with delays, and with the delays will come suffering, but through it, all stands God’s pledge: His new covenant with me in Christ, and His inviolable promise of every lesser blessing that I need. The delay and the suffering are part of the promised blessing; let me praise Him for them today, and let me wait on the Lord and be of good courage and He will strengthen my heart.
Brethren, do not be frustrated in what you do or when the results do not come in time. Remember Jesus waited 4 days before He responded to the call from Martha. It took 21 days for an answer in the case of Daniel. Mystical Children how much time will it take for a response. The system is in delayed mood and we do not know what time there will be a released. God bless and keep you. Amen
