There are many of us who have been holding on to our faith for a long time. We can become easily offended when others allude to the fact that the door has not opened for us due to lack of faith. When we know we are holding on to all the faith we have daily regardless of what the physical circumstances are. We must learn to be patient in our delay. We can’t afford to stop believing and hoping because it has been years and no change has come our way that leads to that one desire we have in our hearts that is above all other desires. A delay doesn’t mean no. It means that God is behind the scenes working hard and being sure that everything is aligned as He has predestined it to be.
In your delay you should do the following things:
D-Destroy doubt constantly
E-Eat less by fasting and turning down your plate so that you can hear God’s whispers to you
L-Laugh and keep your joy knowing that God is your all. He is the author of your life story
A-Ask believing and it shall be done. That is a huge promise from God so remind Him of it often
Y-Yes, keep this word in your mind by seeing yourself doing exactly what you have asked God for
Never give up your hope, dream, desires, and beliefs. Hold on to God’s promises and it will surely come to pass. There were many in the bible who had delays. Moses, Abraham and Sarah, Elijah, David, Jacob, Noah, and many more. Read their stories and be encouraged in knowing that a delay is not a no.
