Hate is a strong word and I rarely use it but in this case it is necessary. I HATE going to the doctor’s office. No, I’m not scared of the office itself or needles but I hate it because you have to wait so long (usually) and not only that after they call your name they usually make you wait again until you finally see the doc!
Many of us feel the same way about God. No I’m not saying that we hate God, I’m saying that many people have felt/heard the call of God but now find themselves in the waiting room and it seems as though nothing is happening.
But as Steven Furtick would say, “Between the promise and the payoff there is a process”. Look at some famous Biblical characters:
David: it was at least a twenty year gap between being anointed king and becoming king.
Moses: spent 40 years in the desert, got called, spent another year & a half to free the children of Israel from Egypt, then another 40 in the desert.
Paul: after being converted spent 3 years in the desert before any missionary journey.
Jesus: 30 years in the background before he performed his first miracle at a wedding in Cana.
The Bible says don’t grow weary in well doing for in due season you shall reap the hearvest and that the words of the Lord shall not come back void but it shall accomplish the thing that it was sent forth to do.
So, you are in the waiting room, that’s ok, don’t allow the process to diminish the promise, the time is coming when you will hear the knock on the door and it will open for you!
