I have been thinking about Abraham lately. He believed God for one thing, that he would have a son. God told Abraham not just one son, but if you can count the stars that is how many descendants you will have. Abraham believed God and kept believing God for 25 years until that promise was fulfilled. One desire, one promise, one man, one God and a lot of time.
Can I encourage you today? What is that one desire, that one promise, that one dream, that one thing that makes you say, I was born to do this? Whatever that is, believe God and don’t stop believing until it comes to pass. God didn’t make you for that one thing to leave you disappointed all the days of your life. Psalm 37:4 says, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
Don’t worry about how it will happen, don’t try to make it happen and don’t look for a man to bring it forth for you. Delight yourself in the Lord, enjoy hanging out with Him, talk to Him about that desire. He gave you that desire not to torment you but to have you fulfill the reason you were born.
It may take time but wait for it, don’t give up on it and like Abraham and Sarah you will see it come to pass, but you must wait for it. Trust and wait are synonymous to God, wait my friends, for it shall come to pass, just look at Isaac, he’s proof God keeps His promises.
Genesis 21:1-3 “Then the LORD took note of Sarah as He had said, and the LORD did for Sarah as He had promised. So Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the appointed time of which God had spoken to him. Abraham called the name of his son who was born to him, whom Sarah bore to him, Isaac.”
