Reading Verse: Deuteronomy 26:1-19
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.
In this modern era, many people want instant things, and there are a lot of advanced technology that work instantly and make things easier. For example, when we need cash, we can just take it from ATM. However, living in the faith of Christianity does not always take instant ways. Sometimes we have to go through a process. We must wait patiently. And while waiting, we should keep our focus on God because He is always working for our good. It is written in Ecclesiastes 3:11 that He has made everything beautiful in its time. It means that all things will be revealed according to God’s timing for us. We must believe that God always gives the best for all of us. For example, we don’t always get quick answer for our prayers; sometimes we must wait for God’s answer patiently. Many of us want quick answers, but keep in mind that God is faithful with His promise and He will answer our prayers. God teaches us to pray continuously and never give up. He has His own timing in helping us. If we have not gotten the answer today, keep praying and hoping until God answers our prayers.
When we are going through a process in life, even though it is not always enjoyable, but we should remain patient. For instance, sometimes we experience failure in achieving success. Don’t give up. We have to get back up to gain victory. The same goes while waiting for God’s promise, we might have to go through many processes. Let us keep our faith and trust Him; God will give us victory. Even when we want to get out of the process immediately, we should endure the process until God’s timing comes. No victory can be achieved without a process, and just believe that God has beautiful plans. We also must learn to be patient in our hope. Hope makes us strong. Hope in God is never wasted, because those who hope in the Lord will never get disappointed. Although what we hope for is not always revealed instantly, but God never forgets us.
In any situations, keep holding on because in Jesus we will have victory.
