Sometimes we think the devil is the one behind our delays. We are quick to point to the village whenever we cannot achieve our goals.
Has it ever occured to you that God may be the one behind your “delays”? Do you know what is ahead of you? You want to get into the university by all means but some how, it’s not working. Could it be that the time is not right?
Whose time are you using to measure your progress in life?
Do you know it was problems that made the prodigal son realized himself and went back home? Do you know how many prodigal sons that didn’t encounter problems on their way and consequently, never retraced their step?
That one is financial stable, is not proof that one is in line with destiny. Many prodigal sons are doing well financially outside their fathers covering and outside their destinies.
Sometimes, God allows problems in our lives to keep us in check or bring us back to himself. Other times, to fortify us for what is ahead.
Others are doing internet fraud and making money but it got to your turn, no result. Some went to witch doctors for help and they got potent charms. You went to same witch doctor and he says your head is not good. Then you become depressed.
Could it be that God didn’t want you to drag your future closer but to go through process?
If not that it was foretold, maybe Mary would have accused her husband’s family of being behind the death of her son. Alas, God was the mastermind.
That issue you are thinking is the work of your village people, have you asked God if he has a hand in it?
Have you ever find yourself in a traffic on the highway and when you enquire, you are told it is the military that stopped the flow. Upon further probing, you are told that it is because armed rubbers are in front?
Some of us are not prepared enough for the journey we have embarked on. God does not back mediocrity. when you involve God in your life, He likes to take things up from the foundation. So you may find yourself starting allover.
If I had entered into the university the same time with some of my friends, maybe I would have joined a secret cult with them. Many never came back alive.
When you are facing the wrong direction, you may face delay by grace. Look up to God, He has the compass to your destination.
You are praying for somebody’s son to find you, but somebody’s son is trained to find somebody’s daughter. whose daughter are you?
So, that issue you are accusing the devil about, what if it’s God preventing you from self-destruct?
The problem with many of us is that we do not know how to recognize the hand of God. Any hand holding us back is seen as the hand of the devil. God can hold you back when you are not well prepared to go forward. He is preventing you from major failure.
This is why it is important to have a personal relationship with Jesus. This is the only way to know what God is doing in our lives.
God is never late. Even after four days in the grave, Lazarus was still brought back to life by Jesus.
I Kings 18:46 “Then the hand of the Lord came upon Elijah; and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.”
What you do in this time of waiting is very important. Instead of complaining, why don’t you start praising in the midst of the storm.
