Be of good courage.
Don't give up.
It will work out.
Words of people trying to encourage you while you wait on the manifestation of your prayers.
Raise your hand if you tired of hearing those words and you want to come out of your storm right now!
You been praying and waiting on that child for 12 years.
You been praying and waiting for a husband/wife for many years.
You praying and waiting for that wayward child who is living on the streets.
You praying and waiting on a health breakthrough.
You praying and waiting... praying and waiting....
Let's look at this another way.
What is happening as you are praying and waiting?
God is working it out for your good.
In the praying and waiting, there is growth and endurance.
While you are in the storm, God is calming the raging seas. He is protecting you from dangers seen and unseen.
He is protecting that child on the street and positioning that child for greatness.
He is preparing you.
He will allow the manifestation in due time. In His time.
So, don't look at it as praying and waiting, look at it as preparing and protecting. There are people and circumstances God is moving out the way and there are some he have to put in position before your manifestation breaks through.
In due time......
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
