Why Are These Delays??
Still talking about AFI, Cindy and her fail on the way to the victory of the competition. Last nite I was chatting with my sister. She also a fan of Cindy. She said that it is okay if Cindy failed now. Because the popularity cannot compared with the quality. Everyone know that in the music business, Cindy’s quality is not doubted anymore. But in life, there’s always some delays. All Cindy Guardians (this is what Cindy’s fans called) already show their supports and prayer. It’s not an unanswered prayer, or failed to victory. It just a delay to victory.
I asked why there’s always a delay in a pathway? My sister opened me the Holy Book and pointed to a verse “If all results were instant, we could never walk in faith. Without faith, we could never please God. (Hebrews 11:6)”. It opened my eyes. Those questions.., why are prayers not all answered instantly? Why don’t we always experience the blessings promised in the Bible immediately?
If you always reaped the harvest of your deeds immediately, the incentive to do right and refrain from wrongdoing would only be selfish. No faith, or love for God, would be required. During delays we have opportunity to demonstrate whether we really love God, and trust Him, or not.
A delay is a test. Without testing, there could be no reward. God does not test us so that we can fail, but so that we can overcome. He believes we will make it with His help. We desire an instant manifestation of victory. What God desires is for us to press into Him and His Word and walk in faith until we see victory.
To overcome there must be opposition and struggle. God cannot always shield us from problems without taking away from us the privilege of overcoming.
Victory is sweet. What makes it sweet is that it is not easy.
If we really trust God, time is not a problem. Leave that with God. His timing is perfect and He is dependable! We know He promised, and can never fail — and that is enough.
