Delay Is Not Denial

DEVOTIONS

Habakkuk 2:3 Amplified Bible (AMP)

3 “For the vision is yet for the appointed [future] time
It hurries toward the goal [of fulfillment]; it will not fail.
Even though it delays, wait [patiently] for it,
Because it will certainly come; it will not delay.

So many times we beat ourselves up trying to compare our progress to that of others, which only leaves us downtrodden and frustrated. Our human reasoning and abilities can easily influence our decision and cause us to limit God. The Bible however is full of examples, showing us how Gods ways are not our ways.

God is a God of order and will make sure he prunes us, no matter how long the process takes. We see this in one of my favourite stories of the bible and that is of Moses. God had to develop his character just as He has to do with us before He can say it’s time.

Just like it was not yet time for Moses, it may not be your time just yet; but wait for the appointed time and God will say YES and nobody will be able to say NO.

Remember delay is not denial, therefore other people’s progress does not make you a failure. Patience and determination is a powerful tool and key.

God bless you
