I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return] (Philippians 1:6 AMP).
Beloved, a few days ago, I asked why we feel we need to worry about time more than the owner of time and I received a comment from a dear sister saying; “God’s timing is best, but when you are going through a 20 year storm or furnace, you definitely ask how long Lord? It is worse, especially when you know that there is nothing too hard for the Lord”.
Well, how does one respond to this? Why is it taking this long Lord? Have you forgotten about our dear sister? Well, let’s see…
Beloved, as it happens, this sister also sent a second message following her first message and the message said; “A testimony from my trip to Uganda. Last week as I checked in at the airport, I was told that my flight was over booked and that I was going to reroute. I just said to the Kenya airways lady as long as I travel on that very day, that’s fine with me because I only had a week in Uganda. Anyway, I was rerouted via Addis Ababa on Ethiopia airlines. I was also compensated £517 for the inconvenience. I bought my ticket £539, so minus £517, my ticket cost me £22. UK to Uganda for £22, now if that’s is not God, then I don’t know! Victory belongs to Jesus”.
Glory hallelujah! Victory definitely belongs to Jesus and yes, it is God. So, my question now is; isn’t He the same God? At least we know He hasn’t deserted our dear sister because He just gave her a mind-blowing testimony and like a friend once said to God; “give me ‘Comfort’ while I’m waiting for ‘Patience’. In order words, while waiting patiently for the promises of God to be fulfilled in my life, at least give me something to comfort me as I wait.
Beloved and He does. The Bible says… Blessed be the Lord, WHO DAILY LOADS US WITH BENEFITS, The God of our salvation! (Psalm 68:19 NKJV)
Please know today that, whatever it is you have been waiting on the Lord for… The Lord will perfect that which concerns you (Psalm 138:8). In the meantime, bless the Lord for all He has done. All He is doing and All He will do.
O my soul, bless God. From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name! O my soul, bless God, don’t forget a single blessing! He forgives your sins—every one. He heals your diseases—every one. He redeems you from hell—saves your life! He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown. He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal. He renews your youth—you’re always young in his presence (Psalm 103:1-5 MSG).
