A couple of days ago, I ordered a new cover for my iPad that was supposed to have already been delivered. I’m not exactly sure what caused the delay, but with the bad weather, moving trucks and tree trimming equipment blocking the road, I’m not really surprised that it didn’t make it here. However, because of good customer service, I should be getting it sometime today. There are a lot of things that may cause delays in our prayers being answered, somewhat like the delay in my package. My best guess would be that most delays aren’t really delays at all. Just because we ask God for something today, doesn’t mean that it’s a part of His plan. God is not your genie in a bottle! He is the Creator and our Sustainer, and His timing is perfect! Though you may feel desperate, remember how good He has been to you in the past and use that as a memorial stone. He’s still right there with you every step of the way. Take a deep breath and trust Him!
For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. Habakkuk 2:3
