There are certain prayers we pray and God answers immediately but because the reality of what we prayed for is so painful, we backtrack and say, maybe I was wrong to pray for that. This is too hard. I take it back etc…
See, remember WHY you prayed that prayer in the first place. Understand that God choosing to answer that prayer knows more than you. One of my favourite verses that embodies this so well, is…
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts”.
Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT
You asked God to take control, you asked for His will to be done in your life. He is doing as you have asked, FOR YOUR GOOD! Step out of the way and fall into His loving arms. He is working this out for you.
The process may hurt and it can sometimes feel like the pain is overwhelming but be encouraged because…
“For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.”
Psalms 30:5 NLT
The way you feel, this situation, this process, does not last forever. It is temporary. However, do you know what is not? God’s love for you. That one is unending!
