Delay is NOT Denial
Father, too often I have trusted in my own power, my own knowledge, my own self instead of YOU. I want to depend on Your power and Your knowledge 100% of the time. You know so much better than I. How much better my life would go if I did this. Help me!
Acknowledgement of the problem is a huge first step - so be encouraged you are on your way, on the right path. Bring your self back to Me again and again when you find yourself wandering back to your self, your power, your knowledge. Cling to Me. Seek Me first always.
from God Calling ...Leave Me out of nothing. Love all My ways with you. Know indeed that "all is well." Delay is but the wonderful and all-loving restraint of your Father - not reluctance, not desire to deny - but the Divine control of a Father who can scarely brook the delay.
Delay has to be - sometimes. Your life is so linked up with those of others, so bound by circumstances that to let your desire have instant fulfillment might in many cases cause another, as earnest prayer, to go unanswered.
But think for a moment of the Love and thoughtful care that seeks to harmonize and reconcile all your desire and longings and prayers.
Delay is not denial - not even withholding. It is the opportunity for Me to work out your problems and accomplish your desires in the most wonderful way possible for you.
Oh My child, trust Me.Remember that your Maker is also your Servant, quick to fulfill, quick to achieve, faithful in accomplishment. Yes. All is well.
