When Delays Are a Blessing

Adrian Rogers

APRIL 24

“And therefore will the Lord wait, that He may be gracious unto you.” – Isaiah 30:18

Many times the Lord will deliberately delay that He may be gracious to us. When Lazarus fell sick, his family sent for Jesus. Instead of coming immediately, Jesus waited (see John 11:1-46). He held back until Lazarus was dead. And if you read John 11:15, you’ll see that He said, “I’m glad,” because He had something greater in mind.

God waited four thousand years to send the Lord Jesus Christ after He made that promise. But Galatians 4:4 says He came in the fullness of time. Never late, never ahead of time, never in a hurry.

Are you in a waiting game…praying days, weeks, months, even years, for something…and God hasn’t answered? Be still and know that in the fullness of time your request will be answered.
