Have you ever been in a traffic jam and you waited and waited and though you moved slowly, the wait was long and all you wanted to know is what is the hold up? Then that moment happened when you saw the accident that was making you wait, you saw the stalled car that was creating the jam. There is something about knowing the what that helps with the wait.
In prayer this morning, I was asking the Lord, how long until we see a demonstration from this period of gestation? I was crying out for understanding as to what is taking so long, what is the hold up, what else can we do in order to get this breakthrough of the promises you have spoken to me, to us? The wait has felt so long, the what is the hold up has felt elusive, I was seeking to understand and the Lord answered as He always does for me through His word.
Today is the 7th of December and I was praying Psalm 37, while praying that Psalm the answer to what are You doing came in verses 9-11 “For evildoers will be cut off, But those who wait for the LORD, they will inherit the land. Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more; And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there. But the humble will inherit the land And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity.” The Lord is eradicating wickedness in our land so the righteous can inherit it. The Lord is removing the chaff, so we can harvest the wheat. The Lord is doing this and it is marvelous in our eyes. I was elated by what I saw, what I heard, it changed everything.
Knowing what God is doing, releases praise in the waiting, removes the wondering, and activates faith. The Lord has not forgotten us, this gestation will lead to a manifestation, it seems to be taking a long time, but God is removing evildoers from our midst, so we can delight in the abundance of everything. When David’s enemies were defeated the land had peace for many years. God is doing it again, He is defeating His enemies and our enemies and we are about to inherit the land again. It is worth the wait when you know what is going on.
