Have you been hoping for a change of story?
Has a particular issue consistently made it to your yearly prayer requests?
Have you been believing God for a promotion or progress in your career and it seems like it will never happen?
Have you been praying for a life partner and all relationships keep coming to an abrupt end?
Have you been waiting for the fruit of the womb and it seems barrenness has found a footing in your home?
I have good news for you. A delay in your testimony does not deny that there will ever be a testimony.
One thing I have discovered about this our great God is when it seems as if He is delaying, be rest assured He is coming in a big way.
Let us look at some scenarios that He came in a big way in the Bible:
In the case of Abraham and Sarah - we were not told how long they had been married but childbearing was very delayed, it was so delayed that they had both given up hope of ever having a child of their own. Sarah had reached menopause but when God came, it was in a big way. They didn't just have a son but a son of promise. Today, we refer to God as the God of ISAAC (Genesis 18:10-15; 21:1-6)
Joseph had several dreams and instead of situations to work towards the fulfillment of the dreams, it was as if it will never be but after the delay, he ended up a prime minister in a foreign land (Genesis 37:5-10; 39,40; 41:1-44)
The woman with the issue of the blood, she had hoped and sought for her healing. We were even told she had spent all her money. The healing that was delayed for 12 years located her and we read about her story today in the Bible (Luke 8:43-48)
The story of Lazarus, the brother of Martha and Mary, they told Jesus as soon as Lazarus took ill but we were told that Jesus stayed back. They thought that Jesus' delay has denied them of ever seeing their brother again but on the contrary they received their brother back alive after 4 whole days in the grave (John 11:1-45)
The man at the pool of Bethesda hoped for his healing but each day seems as though he would never be healed because he had no one to help him to the pool on time but after 38 years of delay, the healing that seemed denied came. As a matter of importance, He was the only one healed out of the many that were sick there ( John 5:2-9)
By now, I expect your faith to come alive, don't close that case yet, it may seem as if God has forgotten you and you may have even written that issue off, I am led to tell you today that our dependable and reliable God is coming in a big way for you.
If you are sick or challenged in your health, you will not only be healed but you will be made whole.
You are believing God for a husband, you will not just be married but be joyfully married.
You are believing God for a child, my God will give you double for your trouble and shame.
Tell yourself, though it tarries, I will wait for it because my God will come through for me in a big way in Jesus' Name, Amen!
