Beloved, welcome to this platform, it is not a mistake that you are here. To GOD Almighty be all the Glory for His Faithfulness and Mercies. With a deep heart felt gratitude to GOD Almighty, who has enabled this post, I pray that the Holy Spirit will disseminate His Word in our hearts and lighten every darkness.

No doubt that some of us are waiting on GOD for His Divine intervention in some areas of our lives. It could be in the area of marriage, children, health issues, other life challenging issues, etc. The waiting period may take a while and differs from one person to another, so the period usually requires patience. Some of us may become exasperated thinking, ‘how much more time would we need to wait to get the change we need?’ Yet, we cannot help ourselves except the LORD Divinely intervenes.

GOD can do all things- HE is the Potter, and we are the clay, the work of His Hands. Sometimes, we wonder why we are going through a certain challenge for such long periods. The waiting time is indeed a trying period. However, I have come to encourage us that waiting on the Almighty GOD is an honour, even when it is trying and challenging. It means GOD has singled us out to glorify HIMSELF and to decorate and beautify our lives. GOD has chosen us to showcase His Sovereignty. We need to have full trust and confidence in the GOD who can do all things. We need to commit everything to GOD’s Hands with thanksgiving, prayer and supplication.

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Philippians‬ ‭4:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬

GOD is Faithful and HE will bring our desires to pass in accordance with HIS Will, for the expectation of the righteous shall not be cut off.

“For surely there is an end; And thine expectation shall not be cut off.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭23:18‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Many a time, we may have been worried thinking, ‘will this expectation of mine come to pass?’ Please stop worrying, commit it to GOD and rest in HIS unfailing Word.

Acts chapters 21 to 23 reveal how Paul was arrested in Jerusalem and the trials he went through. Certain Jews even fasted and took oath, determined not to eat until they have killed Paul. They conspired on how they would execute their plan. In their own eyes and mind, their plan was foolproof, ready to be executed, but GOD scattered their plan. The Almighty GOD scatters the conspiracies of darkness.

Paul was still detained and brought before many leaders. In spite of the affliction, he was focused and was not moved by what he was going through rather, he used the opportunity to tell them about JESUS – The Joy of Salvation. He was sent to the Governor, Felix, at Caesarea for trial. Felix kept him for more than two years thinking Paul would bribe him in order to be set free (Acts 24: 26-27). Eventually, he left the office and decided to leave Paul imprisoned and another Governor, Festus, took over. Meanwhile, the Jewish leaders were still looking for a way to kill Paul.

Paul was denied his freedom even though they could not establish his offense. However, he was not agitated because JESUS had assured Him that he would bear witness of Him in Rome (Acts 23:11) and here he was, detained in Caesarea. Nothing seemed to be moving. Paul knew the Word of GOD must surely come to pass. Taking advantage of the new political climate, the Jewish leaders hatched a new plan to try to kill Paul. To avoid their plans, Paul appealed to Caesar and automatically, he had to be sent to Rome based on his appeal.

In Acts 26:32, King Agrippa told Governor Festus that Paul would have been set free if he did not appeal to Caesar. The Governor also confessed that he could not establish his crime. Unknown to them all, the detour was to testify of JESUS and to bring GOD’s Will to pass. Paul must testify of the LORD in Rome as well.

The journey was very difficult, with several days of slow sailing because of heavy contrary winds, many days of terrible storms, a devastating shipwreck, snake bite, living in an unknown Island, all while still remaining a prisoner. Yet, it turned out to be a success because GOD’s Will was done. Paul got to Rome and preached/taught the Word of GOD (Acts 28: 30-31, Romans 1: 9-12).

I appeal to you: do not cut short the Will of GOD. Ask GOD to direct and order your path and by His Mercy, bring His Will to pass. One of the beautiful things is that GOD does exceedingly above our expectations.

“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” Ephesians‬ ‭3:20-21‬ ‭KJV‬‬.

GOD is Amazing. HE will cause us to laugh and rejoice and silence all mockers. GOD is too much.

Though waiting is not easy, yet it is worth it and there is no other alternative for the ultimate joy that is to come. The Grace of GOD shall be more than sufficient for us.

In waiting, let this be our guide:
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Joshua‬ ‭1:8‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Thank you, beloved, for coming this far. But do you have a relationship with our LORD JESUS Christ?

Beloved, before triumphing in the School of Waiting with the Merciful GOD, you must first have a relationship with Him through our Lord JESUS Christ, His Only begotten Son, who is the Life Giver, Life Changer.

Please make that decision now.

JESUS desires to come into your life if you will allow HIM. No matter who you are, HE will transform you. Please surrender your life to HIM. Now is the appointed time to start a relationship with HIM. Now is the time of Salvation. Please do not procrastinate as tomorrow may be too late.
What you need to do:
1. Acknowledge that you are a sinner
2. Ask for forgiveness of your sins
3. Accept JESUS as your LORD and Saviour
4. Fellowship with your new LORD
5. Please attend a Bible believing Church and if there is a lockdown in your area, please join a Bible believing Church online. The Almighty GOD guide and guard you in your journey of life. Surely, your life can never be the same. Congratulations.

Thank you once again for coming thus far. To all our contributors thank you so very much. We love you all.
To every one of us, the Almighty GOD bless us, establish the work of our hands and reward us abundantly. The LORD enlarge our coasts and bless our families and Ministries. Thank you all.

All Glory be to GOD. Thank YOU, JESUS.

Please do remember to share.
