It May Tarry But Will Surely Come If ….

To every achievement there is a time for maturity. The wàiting period must not be compromised. The ability to achieve depends on the level of work inputs. No effort will go without compensation because the end justifies the means. The strategy employs to drive the system determines the outcome.

Life is measured in terms of achievement. Human beings are always eager to see the manifestation of their actions in order to properly place themselves on scorecard.

Again, the manifestation time of every action depends on the nature of the inputs. For instance, the maturity time for tree plant is far more than shrub. But in all, one thing that is sure is result.

We live in a society where we all want things to happen now. Social media and societal influences affect our lives even if we don’t know it. We pray and pray for the desires of our hearts and when it doesn’t happen in the timing we want it to, we tend to lose hope. God makes us wait for a reason, he allows opportunities and blessings to happen in his timing. When what we want doesn’t happen right away, there is a reason.

“Delay is not denial” has been a phrase on my mind lately.

These things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!

God allows us to wait so that we can grow as Christians. Delay doesn’t mean denial, it just means wait. Waiting is hard for us because our society doesn’t believe in it. If things do not come in an instant then we move on. Patience is a virtue that needs to be valued more

What a blessing it is to know that God loves us and will work things out for us. God wants to make his blessings known through us. We are his earthly vessels. Understand that everything will happen in due time. Instead of dwelling on the fear of the unknown or rejection, wait on God’s provision. He will come through, we just have to trust the process.

Fear is invaluable in life. Without fear, without doubt, without discomfort in what we are doing, what is there for any of us to overcome.

Fear is invaluable in life. Without fear, without doubt, without discomfort in what we are doing, what is there for any of us to overcome.

However, no matter how late, it will definitely come to pass. It is advisable to keep hope alive and wait patiently for it though, it tarries.
