A man went to a café and placed an order, the waiter quietly listened as she wrote down his request after which she politely told him his meal will be there shortly. You will agree with me that waiting for your food to get to you could be the hardest thing if you are hungry and going to eat at Nando’s on a Sunday afternoon lol.
Moments later a man walks in, places his order and grabs a seat. The waiter returns with the order of the second man which angered the first man. He approaches the waiter and questioned why they had to serve a man who came after him before they attend to him. The waiter politely explained to him that the second man ordered a meal that was easier to prepare (say hot dog) and that what he ordered takes longer (more like a main course meal). Much later when the other man was done eating, came the first man’s order looking ‘mouth-watering’.
Lesson to be learnt: it may linger, it may appear like God has suddenly turn deaf ears and blind eyes to you but wait for it! With patience and perseverance it will come.
Habakkuk 2:3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.
2 Peter 3:9a
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness.
Sometimes we ask God for a big miracle but do not want to wait for it, we look at our friends and neighbours with the little miracles they have asked God for and wonder why God has not handed ours to us yet. Truth is, we may have to learn patience in every ‘waiting’ process. At the end of the day after we patiently waited and it is our turn, God will provide us with mouth-watering testimonies in Jesus name.
