TRUST in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths (Prov 3:5-6)~ God’s promise to us has a process. Take the Israelites when they were brought out of Egypt. They wanted “instant” Promised Land. But God’s promise had a process! The process was for them to not just be delivered, but also healed and set free… from their past. Many of the Israelites though were not willing to go through the process and as a result of their impatience and actions, they missed the opportunity to go into the Promised Land. God’s plan wasn’t fast enough! The small victories along the way weren’t big enough! They got so wrapped up in the “rewards” of the Promise… they had to have it “right now”… and so they pursued it in their own ways rather than the ways of God. We need to see that if we will just walk through the process, we will continually see blessings and miracles making us gradually better along the way. Not only will we see, we will experience and receive. As you pray for your ‘Promised Land’, don’t be discouraged that you may have to cross a ‘Red Sea’ and take a journey through the ‘desert’ for a period of time. That journey is God’s process. And what a journey to walk, especially when you are walking it out with The Lord! Rather than trying to race to the promise at the finish line, take a walk through the process with the Lord! Allow yourself to see what He’s doing with and for you along the way. You’ll find so many blessings in that itself! You’ll be glad to have gone the process route over the convenience of “instant” gratification!
For all the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us… (2 Cor 1:20)
