I was driving down the road the other day, praying (with eyes open) about my God-given desires for ministry and how they will continue to unfold. God interrupted me. I wasn’t pausing to listen like I should, so I’m glad He interrupted me. It was not an audible voice. It was His Holy Spirit bringing a verse back to my mind – “Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it” (I Thessalonians 5:24). Then God broke it down into 3 parts:
I CALLED YOU!
I AM FAITHFUL!
I WILL DO IT!
That will get your attention! God reminded me of what should be obvious, but His servants can be a little slow (or a lot slow) at times.
I had to step back in my mind and remember that although I do not see all the details unfolding before my eyes, God is faithful to His promise. The things He has put in my heart for the future will come to pass. It may take months or a few years, but God will do it.
We are an impatient generation. Some of what God has put within us may not unfold for decades. Are we willing to wait, or will we walk away and be unfaithful to a God who never forsakes us?
Let this be a reminder to you. God called you! God is faithful! God will do it!
