Delay is Not Denial

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their
hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to
end. T
“The end justifies the means” is a popular saying that hold true even to date. The
journey of life is full of twists and turns, it is by no means a strait jacket. Just like
the human fingers that are different in size and shape, yet useful for different
purposes, so the life journey of all people, that Mr. A started out early does not
mean he will be better than Mr. B who started late. The fact that Mrs. K married
and started making babies immediately does not suggest that her latter days will
be better than Ms. D who at thirty three is still waiting for her own spouse; the
story of Hannah and Peninah shows us that the race is really not for the swift, as
there was no mention of any of the children of Peninah, yet even heaven bore
witness about Samuel – the “late comer” first child of Hannah.
Job. 5:8-9
But as for me, I would seek God, And to God I would commit my cause— Who
does great things, and unsearchable, Marvelous things without number.
No man can receive anything without being given from above, the fact that you are suffering
a delay in any area of life does not mean that God has forgotten or denied you, if anything, it
is so that you can draw closer to Him the more in faithfulness and perfection(Gen.17:1). God
reserves the right to do with your life as He wills, as the potter does with the lump of clay.
Eccl. 8:17
then I saw all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done
under the sun. For though a man labours to discover it, yet he will not
find it; moreover, though a wise man attempts to know it, he will not be able to
find it.
The ways of our God is past finding out, otherwise how does one explain the story of the life
of Solomon, a product of illegitimate relationship, yet so highly blessed by God? Beloved,
rather than look at things not working in your life, why not focus on Him whose ways are past
finding out, firm up your relationship with the Maker of all things with whom there is no
variableness neither of shadow of turning. Everyone that waited on God got their requests
granted and they go the best (Isaac, Samuel, Joseph, John the Baptist ).
Rom. 11:33
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How
unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
Do not try to work out how the delay will come to an end, only hold on to Him who has no
impossibilities, you mind is too miniscule to understand the depth of His wisdom. Those who
called Sarah barren came to rejoice and laugh with her at the fullness of time, if you will only
trust, believe and obey, your day of laughter is just around the corner.
That delay is not a denial but a reason to get the best and have the last laugh…..Shalom
