Delay or Dead end

Proverbs 3:5-6. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Whenever there is a delay in our lives, we must determine to fill the gap between here and there by intentionally proclaiming every hint of God’s activity. Just the fact that we woke up breathing this morning is evidence of His goodness. Just because God is silent in one area of our life does not mean that He is silent in every area; and this is a fact that we have to acknowledge at all times.

Whenever you are faced with any delay in life, be it marriage, a job or some breakthrough of any sort, have this in mind: “I will not run ahead of God in this. I will not manipulate or manufacture solutions. I will not give up until God confirms I should. I will keep seeking God, fully anticipating and trusting His perfect plan to unfold in His perfect timing and His perfect way. And if He does confirm that this is a dead end, I will still honor Him.” Trust God; and choose to believe He is packing great purpose into our places of pausing.


Heavenly father, I confess that all too often I confuse pauses in my life with end points. Remind me that my thoughts are not your thoughts and my ways are not your ways. Help me not to run ahead of you, but instead fully seek you. I trust that your plan and timing are perfect in Jesus’ name. AMEN.
