He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it. 1 Thessalonians 5:24
Is there something you have been praying about for a long time? You know that your request is in keeping with God’s will. You’ve checked the Scriptures to make sure you are on target, and God has confirmed that you are. Each verse the Holy Spirit brings up underscores God’s faithfulness and ability to answer your prayer. However, your request seems to go unanswered.
God anointed David king over Israel when he was a lad and fresh out of service in his father’s sheep field. Yet he did not assume the kingship until several years later. God may give you a promise and then allow you to go through a time of waiting for Him to bring it to completion.. That is when you face the greatest temptation to doubt Him. You wonder what He is doing, and you question His reasoning. Thoughts such as Has God forgotten His promise? run through your head as you worry over doing the right thing. Doubt is the breeding ground for confusion and fear.
Faith is the atmosphere in which hope and joy flourish. If God has promised to do a certain thing, it will be done. Never give up; with God all things are possible.
