THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WAITING ON GOD AND DELAYS
“but they that wait for Jehovah shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.”
Isaiah 40:31 ASV
There is a big difference between waiting on the lord and experiencing delays in life. Some of us think they both mean the same thing but that’s not true although the devil will want you to believe they are the same so it will be easy for him to take advantage of your ignorance..
when you take a good look at the passage we just read you will see some of the benefits of waiting on the lord. Number one, waiting on the lord produces a positive result in your life, delays don’t do the same. When you wait on the lord or when God ask you to wait, he transforms you through the process, he builds your life, inspires you, renews your strength and get you ready for the next level of your life, but delays produces frustration, desperation, anxiety and fear.
number two, when you wait on God things change for the better, you gain momentum ( they shall mount up with wings like the eagle) things come alive in you, but a man who is experiencing delays loses things, things die around you, limitations and stagnation becomes your daily experience.
number three, a man who is waiting on God or God has asked you to wait, it may seem as if your wasting time in the eyes of a carnal man, but the truth is that you have been move into the speed lane of life, because your been transported into your next level by supernatural means. A man that is been delayed is going no where. He may be making some movements but it’s not a progress movement, it’s the movement of a drowning man.
when God is involved in your holding on it’s not a delay it is a strategy of the spirit to lunch you into your next level, but when the enemy is involved your making any progress that’s what we call delays. Delay of any sort is a problem, it’s not from God and it needs to be addressed immediately. Delays destroys a man’s vision, destiny, and integrity, but waiting for God or on God adds to your life and moves you to greater heights.
I pray that every form of delays in your life be terminated this season in Jesus name. Amen.
