How much Longer?

For those that are tired of waiting:

We have read throughout the Bible many examples of Biblical characters having to wait on the appointed time of God for things/situations to change that they have prayed for. For example Isaac prayed to God for his wife Rebekah because she was barren.

(Genesis 25:20-21) “And Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the Syrian of Padan–aram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.  {21} And Isaac intreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.”

God answered Isaac’s prayer, but it took 20 years of them praying to the Lord for a child for it to come to pass. Isaac was 60 years old when Rebekah bare their children.

(Genesis 25:24-26) “¶ And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb.  {25} And the first came out red, all over like an hairy garment; and they called his name Esau.  {26} And after that came his brother out, and his hand took hold on Esau’s heel; and his name was called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old when she bare them.”

This is a great reminder to have confidence and patience when we pray, God hears us (Psalms 34:17). 1 John 5:14-15 says, “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:  {15} And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” 1 John 3:21-22 says, “Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.  {22} And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.”

Whatever your situation may be, whatever you may be waiting on just keep waiting. I know waiting for an answer can feel like walking through a desert. It is dry, frustrating, and tiring and all you want to know if it’s going to rain any time soon. You may feel like you can’t go on, but be encouraged in your wait it will happen in God’s appointed time. God’s timing is perfect and knowing that should make you smile.

(Psalms 27:14) “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.”

  1. Many times I’ve said to GOD, How much Longer? I know that GOD is teaching me to be still, continue to trust Him and be patient in my waiting. GOD knows the when, the where and how. The scripture that was quoted in this blog: Psalm 27:14 KJV encourages me to know GOD will do what He has promised.

    May you continue to share GOD’s Word in your Blog writing.
    May GOD bless you richly with
    the desires of your heart❤️

  2. I’ve also questioned in my mind and heart, GOD, when will my day be for my questions to be answered. And then again I think and remember, everything happens in GOD’S timing. I’ve learned to be patient and wait on God to grant me whatever he feels I deserve. That is why I trust in GOD and will do so until the day I die.
