I had not understood why it takes so long
Why it requires more, to see right, than wrong
But I’ve come to realize, His ways, His plan
Best to wait on Him than to trust in man
We don’t always see the goodness in God among the midst of everything that is happening around us. In result, we go our own ways and tend to be hasty with the decisions that we make. We have to wait and trust in God, despite how impatient we may be. There is a reason why we are still here on this Earth. It is very important to know that in the process, God is planning out bigger and greater things for us. During this time of waiting, we must and should also practice a lot of self-reflection. It is like running on a treadmill with a deep and steep incline. The process will be tough and energy will be lost, but God is indeed preparing and training us for something grand. Lamentations 3:25 states:
“The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.”
What we ask from God won’t happen instantly. God has to be faithful to His word. Those who stray away from God because they did not receive the answer that they are looking for are not genuine in their hearts to seek God. Rather, it is just instant self-gratification. Be busy mending your nets and work for your preparations. Trust in God more than you trust in man. Man takes back his words and actions all the time, but God will never go that route. Our patience is an indication of our faith. Pray and wait in anticipation, for God is going to grant your request. Trust in Him.
