Ecclesiastes 3:1, "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens." Often, when we pray, our expectations are a little high, and we want an immediate answer from God. Sometimes, our hopes are in accordance with God and sometimes they aren't but that doesn't mean that we should completely lose hope. He has a plan for us as he says in Jeremiah 29:11, "I know the plans i have for you,' declares the Lord, 'Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope, and a future."
He wants us to be successful in life, and He doesn't want to see us in distress, but sometimes, we just need some patience when we pray for something. One time, I prayed to God for a present, and I even came up with a date for when I should get that present, on July 14 (I know, that was wrong) and the day ended. So I prayed again that night, "Preety please, may I have my present?" But I didn't get that day. Or the day after the that. Until on the night of July 17, i lost all hope and felt that it wasn't going to happen my way. I realised that i was pushing my own time to God, instead of leaving it all to Him. So I knealt down, and said Lord, I know I've been doing my own thing, but right now I need you to take control. And by the Grace of God, I got my present today, July 18!! Praise be to God!
Friends, I know, this happens to all of us, but do not get discouraged because the love of our Lord Jesus Christ falls upon us, and He forgives us for being a little pushy. I pray that this post may reach out to you, that you may discover and experience the love and grace of our Lord and Savior. So pray to Him, talk to Him, but just remember to WAIT!! God Bless You.
