If you had to name one thing you hate doing, what would it be?
Some would say cleaning. You know, the ones who can’t even stand the sight of a broom. (Trust me. I understand where you’re coming from.)
Others may say working. Those are the people who wake up in the morning already counting when they get off. (Once again, I feel you.)
Then, you have the big one that most of us can’t stand due to apps, technology, streaming, and various other modern things. I’m talking about waiting.
Yes, most of us cannot seem to stand waiting. From getting our money to getting our products to even getting a spouse, we want what we want & we want it now.
It seems like the very thought of not getting stuff immediately makes our skin crawl. Immediate satisfaction has become a drug to our culture. It is no longer a benefit, but a necessity.
As bad as that is, this has now carried over to how we approach our purposes & destinies.
2 Peter 3:9 states, “The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.” (NLT)
God always does what He said. He just wants to make sure we are ready when he does it.
We have to remind ourselves of this daily so we don’t get trapped by impatience and doubt. Patience is necessary for any type of purpose to be revealed and for any destiny to be fulfilled.
Just wait on God & let His will be done because getting something early doesn’t always mean it’s on time. Getting what you want doesn’t always mean getting what you need. But fulfilling your God-given purpose will always leave you satisfied.
