Waiting for Change
There is a place between PROMISE and FULLFILMENT called "in the meantime." This is the place of change and transformation. Here’s three questions to ask yourself “in the meantime”:
• Whose voice am I listening to? Abram thought he was listening to the voice of wisdom when Sarai offered for him to sleep with her maidservant Hagar so they could have their promise fulfilled. As if God needed help keeping His promise. When we listen to voices other than the Lord’s, we will birth Ishmaels instead of Isaacs every time.
• What is God developing inside of me during this season? The truth is God is not delaying your promises. He is waiting for you to become the person you need to be so you can have the spiritual strength and maturity needed to carry the promise He has made to you. It’s the mercy of God that He has not fulfilled certain promises. He knows the enemy would love to crush us with premature fulfillment.
• Do you desire the promise more than the Promiser? This question is the most important and the most telling of our progress. It reveals our intentions and shows us to change in the deepest place of our souls – our heart's motive. I am so grateful for this question because it teaches me to desire the PROMISER more than the PROMISE.
Are you waiting properly? How you wait determines “how” and “when” your fulfillment comes. Waiting produces strength, gives you heaven's perspective, and replenishes you to have endurance. God is more interested in who you’re becoming while you’re waiting than what you’re waiting for. Give Him something worth watching by waiting properly!
“But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”
Isaiah 40:31 NKJV
