"This means tremendous joy to you, I know, even though you are
temporarily harassed by all kinds of trials and temptations. This is no
accident — it happens to prove your faith, which is infinitely more
valuable than gold ..." (1 Peter 1:6-7 PH)
In order to build
your faith, God will give you a dream. Then, he'll urge you to make a
decision. But then HE WILL ALLOW A DELAY, because :
## In the delay He matures
you and prepares you for what is to come.
## The truth is : YOU WILL HAVE TROUBLES WHILE GOD DELAYS.
This isn't because he doesn't care
about you or that he's forgotten your circumstances; rather, it's one of
the ways He PUSHES YOU TOWARD the deep end of faith.
delays, you'll face 2 types of difficulties: CIRCUMSTANCES and CRITICS.
This is a natural part of life. God designed it this way
because he knows we grow stronger when facing adversity and opposition.
1. When Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt into the desert
toward the Promised Land, he had one problem after another. First there
was no water. Then there was no food. Then there were a bunch of
complainers. Then there were poisonous snakes. Moses was doing what God
wanted him to do, but he still had problems.
2. David was
anointed king, and then for the next several years he was hunted down by
3. Joseph had a dream of becoming a ruler, yet he was sold into
slavery and thrown into prison on a false charge where he languished,
4. Imagine the difficulties Noah had building a floating zoo!
5. The Bible says that when Moses died, Joshua was appointed the new
leader. Moses led the people across the desert, and then Joshua led them
into the Promised Land. Did he get the easy part? The Bible says that
when the Israelites entered the Promised Land, there were giants in the
land. Even in the Promised Land there were problems!
HOWEVER : ALL THE PROBLEMS AND DIFFICULTIES THAT HAPPENS TO YOU NOW,
THEY ARE ONLY TEMPORARY.. ONLY FOR A WHILE.. GOD WILL BRING IT TO PASS IN THE RIGHT TIME
WITH HIS UNPREDICTABLE WAYS. BE PATIENT AND BELIEVE IN HIS TIMING.
**** God allows a delay because HE IS BUILDING OUR FAITH AND CHARACTERS.
**** When we finally
come to a place where the difficulties become so bad, WHERE WE'VE REACHED OUR LIMITS, where we've TRIED EVERYTHING AND EXHAUSTED ALL OUR OPTIONS, IT IS THEN GOD BEGINS HIS MIGHTY WORKS.

THAT IN ME YOU FIND PEACE. IN THIS WORLD YOU WILL HAVE TROUBLE, BUT REJOICE ! I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD" - (JOHN 16:33)
