Stalled at Uncomfortable Places

Life can sometimes be frustrating. I get it. As a Christian, your first “go-to” should be prayer. But when our prayer request doesn’t meet our timetable, we try and go it alone; take matter into our own hands.

We find our circumstances lingering for days, weeks, maybe even years.

Seek God first and everything else will fall into place. He sees your heart. He knows your needs.

Don’t get hung up on what’s not going right, but put your focus on His goodness and what’s going well.

Just because we don’t see immediate changes, doesn’t mean that God didn’t hear you. Waiting patiently on God’s response is our way of letting God know we trust Him. Waiting grows our faith.

Don’t forget that God’s got this!

2 Peter 3: 8-9 – “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
