We want it now God.
Healing for our loved ones. Not in a little while longer. It’s already been too long. They need energy for work. To earn a living. To pay the medical bills and restock the drained savings account. Energy to play with their children. They want to help their children raise their children…we want the healing now.
Salvation for those who refuse to accept Jesus. You break down hardened hearts, not us. We don’t care about the journey getting there 10 years from now. We’ve already been praying for 10 years. Time is up. We want them saved now.
We want the promotion now. We’ve already been patient. We’ve waited on You.
We don’t want to go through the hard times to appreciate the good times. We just want the good times. Now.
We want an easier life. Now. So that we can finally relax and enjoy the rest of our days in peace; with security; with less worry.
Yet at our inner core we know this is not how He works. The journey does matter for the unsaved. The prayer journey for those praying matters. He uses the misery, the pain, the drudgery, monotony, unfairness…it is all His will not ours.
It is always His timing, never ours.
So we surrender.
“But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.” NLT 2 Peter 3:8
