When life throws rocks at you, and when the storm is raging, don’t panic. Don’t grow impatient. Don’t scoot. Don’t run away. Don’t stop hoping. Don’t stop praying. Don’t stop believing. Don’t do things on your own. Just sit tight, and trust. Know that in your most helpless and desperate situation, you’ve done the best that you can. You’ve presented it to Jesus, and He won’t ignore that.
However, what if He tells you what He told His mother? He says, “My time has not yet come”?
Disappointing, isn’t it? We expect the fast. We want the instant. With a snap of our fingers, upon saying ‘Amen’ to our prayers, we already want to see the answer. Unconsciously, we think that Jesus is a genie that will give us all we want with just a slight rub with a lamp.
Well, He can do that. He can satisfy our impatient nature. Time does not make any difference to Him. He is able to do everything. Our God is omnipotent and all mighty. What if God makes you wait, though? What if your answer is taking long? What will you do?
“Do whatever He tells you.”
Trust Him. That’s it. When our answer is taking long, it doesn’t mean that God is absent. No. He’s still there, and He’s talking to us. He’s telling us what to do. Sometimes, even if it seems irrelevant, we still have to obey. Why? Because He’s God. He knows what is best for us. He knows the future, and He is the One who designs everything so all will work together.
Look at the servants. What did filling huge pots with water have anything to do with wine? Still, they did what Jesus said. Who would think of letting the master of the feast taste water in time of the crisis? Still, they trusted that Jesus had something in mind. They did it. That’s trust, beloved.
When God wants you to continue in the ministry. Stay there.
When God wants you to give that amount. Don’t hesitate.
It seems foolish and impractical, but if it is what God wants, know that His ways are far above human wisdom. God won’t lead you to your downfall. He will never do that.
Respond to Him immediately, beloved, and you’ll be like the servants. You’ll witness something that is so great it has never crossed your imagination. You’ll receive a blessing that will not only satisfy your needs, but will also have you marveling at who your Savior really is. You will be experiencing a miracle.
Your obedience will not be in vain. Your waiting will be nothing compared to the best that God will give you. That’s how great God is. Don’t ever underestimate Him.
