"For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God" (Romans 8:19, KJV).
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
It is God's will for His children to manifest His glory and power. But at times, we see this manifestation being delayed. The question is what could be the possible cause(s) of this delay? The following are some
1. THE MAN IS NOT READY: God will want you to come to a level of maturity
before He hands over some things to you. Probably, He is waiting for your character to fit into the position He is preparing for you so that when you get there you will not crash.
2. GOD WANTS TO GET MAXIMUM GLORY: All the glory must go to God and toHim alone. Just like when Lazarus was sick. The Lord knew that the maximum glory would come after he had been buried for four days.
3. MAN HAS NOT CONNECTED TO THE LIGHT THAT WILL BRING THE MANIFESTATION:
Behind every manifestation, there is a light that brings it to pass anduntil you connect to that light there may be a delayed manifestation.
4. GOD WANTS TO TAKE THE ENEMY BY SURPRISE: When all your enemieshave done their worst and think you are completely destroyed, God
will show up and deliver you; and it will serve as a surprise to them.
The three Hebrew boys were going to be thrown into the fire. Godwaited for them to be in the fire before He delivered them, taking theenemy as a surprise. May God take your enemies by surprise inJesus name, amen!
When God is involved, delays are not denials.
Lord, help me to be faithful to You in my moments of delay.
