Some things seem to take forever to work out. Many times our most urgent prayer requests are the ones that are the last to be answered. Other requests that aren’t so important to us are answered in a very short time.
It could very well be that the things that are the most important are the things we cling to and are too important to let go. In some cases, without realizing it, God is second place to the importance of that particular request.
It’s all about God and His purpose for our lives. He will grant our heart’s desires in His timing and His way. If He is second place to the importance of a particular desire He will wait for us to move over to allow Him to work. A lot of times the biggest obstacle is our own desires that push God aside.
When we allow God to work in a situation, even if it takes what seems like a life time, we can expect far more than our biggest dreams.
An example of His exceeding abundance is with Samson. His parents waited a long time and still didn’t have a child. When God’s timing was right, the parents were visited by an angel of the Lord to announce Samson. Heaven intervened to present them with a child. God can do the same for us even in our most critical situations. A lot of time may pass but God has not forgotten. His answer in due time will be too amazing for human words.
Then Manoah asked the angel of the Lord, “What is your name? For when all this comes true, we want to honor you.”
“Why do you ask my name?” the angel of the Lord replied. “It is too wonderful for you to understand.”
