Lamentations 3:25: “The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, To the soul who seeks Him.”
God’s promises will always come true. Moses had to wait and work 40 years before he was led to bring Israel from bondage in Egypt. Abraham had to wait years for the promise of a son to take place. Noah had to build the ark for around a century before he and his family was saved from the flood. Not all promises are fulfilled on this side of Heaven, but they will always be fulfilled.
The key is patience and waiting for God to fulfill them. It’s tempting to try and make them come to pass on our own. Abraham learned that the hard way. He and Sarai tried to make it happen through her handmaiden.
When you shortcut the path to God’s promise, you make a sacrifice - you sacrifice growth, patience-building, and God’s timing.
