Isaiah 30:18 -Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for Him!
Have you ever noticed that God is not in a hurry? It took 40 years for Moses to receive his commission to lead the people out of Egypt . It took 17 years of preparation before Joseph was delivered from slavery and imprisonment. It took 20 years before Jacob was released from Laban’s control. Abraham and Sarah were in their old age when they finally received the son of promise, Isaac. So why isn’t God in a hurry?
In another context, Daniel 10:13 says as -But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia . He was in struggle and waited with faith and uncounted that experience.
God called each of these servants to accomplish a certain task in His Kingdom, yet He was in no hurry to bring their mission into fulfillment. First, He accomplished what He wanted in them. Praise God. God is always in first place in their life. HE must be. We need to bring a habit of putting HIM in the center of life and allowing HIM to execute all the things in our life.
The Lord owns a system which has got marvelous things to observe. The system operates in HIS own time. The system yields the result with no fail. The system operates in success mode always. The system expects the individual to do our part and rest to believe on HIM- The system will not do the magic by itself as we can clearly see that HIS purpose and plan is always different from the world.
Any System will have three components:-
>> Inputs – We need to our part too.
>> Process – transformation to get mature in HIM. This is the part we need to focus much. To change ourselves in HIM, into HIS ways, for HIS glory, by HIS grace.
>> Outcome – fulfillment of mission.
The same is holds good for the God’s System too- HE will set the stage for us. HE allows us difficult moments. HE Shows paths and ways to make use of it/ to escape from it- The only prerequisite is we need to be in sink with GOD to understand those situations and circumstances to make use of it. If we sail in HIS path by understanding the God’s leading and presence- the journey will be very much enrichment in all ways- That is the journey everyone wanted and God too expects. We often fail to experience that journey, because of pride, lust, selfish thoughts, prayer less life, immersed in unnecessary thoughts. Let us examine and remove what is not required and retain what is needed at this hour?! Let us do self analysis and keep HIM in our first priority- This is the secret to bring more Glory to HIM- HIS system works in us!
If God is for us, who can be against us. God says that I am putting my right hand on you and stand besides you- that means HE Stands in our left side and watches our every moment whether we are getting success in the system where HE put us to get victory- HE is the Lord of Victory. Amen.
Psalm 109:31 – For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul-
We are often more focused on outcome than the process that He is accomplishing in our lives each day. When we experience His presence daily, one day we wake up and realize that God has done something special in and through our lives. However, the accomplishment is no longer what excites us. Instead, what excites us to knowing Him. Through those times, we become more acquainted with His love, grace, and power in our lives. When this happens, we are no longer focused on the outcome because the outcome is a result of our walk with Him. It is not the goal of our walk, but the by-product. Hence, when Joseph came to power in Egypt , he probably couldn’t have cared less. He had come to a place of complete surrender so that he was not anxious about tomorrow or his circumstances.
This is the lesson for us. We must wait for God’s timing and embrace wherever we are in the process. When we find contentment in that place, we begin to experience God in ways we never thought possible.
