Does it ever feel like God is taking “too long” to reveal His will?
I know I’ve felt like that. I remember one time in particular where I continually prayed for God’s will to be done and for Him to make His will clearly known. I prayed that prayer over and over for months before it finally hit me. God impressed upon me that His will WAS being accomplished. You see, I was equating God’s will with the “final answer”, but He impressed upon me that His will was being perfectly accomplished…in the waiting. He was teaching me lessons in and through the waiting that might not be able to be learned at any other time. Through those lessons, he was growing me in areas that would benefit me both then and in the future. No, I didn’t know what His “final answer” in terms of His will in that particular situation would be, but I could rest in the fact that His will was being accomplished then and there…in the waiting.
“For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside Thee, what He hath prepared for him that waiteth for Him.” -Isaiah 64:4
