Why do You withdraw Your hand, even Your right hand [from judging the enemy]? Remove Your hand from Your chest, destroy them! Yet God is my King of old, Working salvation in the midst of the earth. You divided the [Red] Sea by Your strength; You broke the heads of the sea monsters in the waters.
You crushed the heads of Leviathan (Egypt); You gave him as food for the creatures of the wilderness. You broke open fountains and streams; You dried up ever-flowing rivers. The day is Yours, the night also is Yours; You have established and prepared the [heavenly] light and the sun. You have defined and established all the borders of the earth [the divisions of land and sea and of the nations]; You have made summer and winter (Psalms 74:11-17).
When we seek the face of G_d, we expect that G_d will change the circumstance immediately. When He doesn’t change it according to our timeframe, the Devil uses it as a springboard to break down our faith or to generate doubt. G_d always answer prayer although we may not recognize it as an answer. David was promised the throne of Saul while he, David, was a young man; yet, he did not ascend to the throne until he was in his late 20 to early ’30s. Abraham was promised a mighty and immense nation but it did not occur until the time of Jacob and even at that, it was years past the birth of the 12 sons of Israel. It was the reason Habakkuk went to his watchtower to wait and see what the Lord will say (Habakkuk (2:1).
You answer prayer in your time. If you answered prayer according to our checklist, it would only cause problems like what happened with Abraham and Sarah. Help me to be faithful in all that I do and when you speak help me to go to my watchtower to wait and see what you will say. You are not a God that is given to favoritism like Rebekkah and you know the appropriate time for everything. Israel was sent into exile for 70 years until the land was cleansed. and you knew just when the time was right. May I be ever faithful to you Lord in all that I do. Be with my family and families today.
