We tend to do the same thing with waiting on our prayers to be answered at times too don't we? When we don't get immediate answers we become impatient. Sometimes so much so that we quit praying for something. The truth is that one of the fruits of the Spirit is patience.
God always answers either with a Yes, No or a Wait. The waiting part is the hardest. God's Word tell us to Ask, Seek and Knock. The "Asking" part comes easy doesn't it? But the "Seeking" part can be tough! Matthew 7:7 says, "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
The thing we have to remember is there is no time frame for praying. It may take days, months or even years before we find that in which we are seeking. Here is the thing though....remember when I said that we should look for God-opportunities while we are in the "waiting" period? What if we could only capture the mind set to look at what Christ is doing Through us and In us while we are waiting on answered prayer!
A quilt of our prayer life is in the making!
