When the time is not right, God says “Slow”.
What catastrophe it would be if God answered every prayer at the snap of your fingers. Do you know what would happen? God would become your servant, not your master.
Suddenly, God would be working for you instead of you working for God.
Remember: God’s delays are not denials. God’s timing is perfect. Patience is what we need in prayer.
When you are not right, God says “Grow”.
The selfish person has to grow in unselfishness.
The cautious person must grow in courage.
The timid person must grow in confidence.
The dominating person must grow in sensitivity.
The critical person must grow in positive attitudes.
The pleasure~seeking person must grow in compassion for suffering people.
When everything is all right, God says “Go”.
Then miracles happen:
A hopeless alcoholic is set free!
A drug addict finds release!
A doubter becomes as a child in his belief.
Diseased tissue responds to treatment, and healing begins.
The door to your dream suddenly swings open and there stands God saying “Go!”.
