But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. – 2 Peter 3:8-9 ESV
God is a drama KING, He is THE great CONDUCTOR in the sky. It is all about GLORY. More drama, MORE GLORY! He is Jehovah Sabaoth; He is the Lord of Hosts, the Lord of the Armies. He is the Commander in charge of the entire battle field. There has never been an emergency meeting of the TRINITY. We must TRUST GOD, that He has this under control. He wants us to TRUST HIM and that means, HE wants us to have FAITH that HE IS IN CONTROL, that we are in HIS HANDS! For it is impossible to please God without Faith! (Hebrews 11:6)
Leader, James tells us that without Faith we are troubling waters: But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. (James 1:6-8) There is a SPACE BETWEEN, when God makes a promise or a revelation and the implementation or the fulfillment of that promise. It is in that GAP, that we know our status in relation to our relationship toward God. Abraham waited for 25 years. From the time of God’s promise to the time of Isaac’s birth and what He did in that SPACE BETWEEN is still causing problems today.
Conduit, from the book STREAMS IN THE DESERT: ‘When the Israelites were entrapped by Pharaoh’s pursuing army at the Red Sea, they were commanded to “go forward” (Ex 14:15). No longer was it their duty to wait, but to rise up from bended knees and “go forward” with heroic faith. Years later the Israelites were commanded to show their faith again by beginning their march over the Jordan while the river was at its highest point. They held the key to unlock the gate into the Land of Promise in their own hands, and the gate would not begin to turn on its hinges until they had approached and unlocked it. The key was FAITH’. Today unlock the door that is blocking God’s plan for you. HAVE FAITH, by acting, AS IF!
