Habukkuk 2:3
For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.
I remember being in the the doctor’s office for my annual visit and being in the waiting room was annoying. I had gone through a few magazines, surfed my phone, and thought to myself, “I’ll just reschedule.”. I walked to the reception desk and asked about how much longer they thought the doctor would be. They said that they didn’t know but that I wouldn’t have to wait forever. I thought to myself, “Well, what’s forever to you? Because the way I’ve been waiting, sure feels like its been forever.” So, I sat down and I kept thinking, “I’ll just reschedule.” However, I began reasoning with myself and started thinking that I should get this done and over with, so that I won’t have to make another visit. If I get my annual check-up and ensure that all is well, this visit with the doctor will hold me over until the next year unless I have to come back for other reasons. The nurse came out and said to the room of patients waiting, “Hang tight. The Doctor HAS to see you. It’s her job to see you. She’s just giving each patient un-rushed time to make sure you’re WELL.” When she said this, it dawned on me that I have “a waiting problem”.
I have learned that when I’m waiting I get anxious and nervous. Even in my walk with the Lord, I’ll start questioning if He has forgotten about me. I often question Him and will have asked, “Why is it happening for them, but not happening for me?” However, God has corrected me about this. What’s happening for them, shouldn’t be my business and shouldn’t determine the space that I’m in with God nor His ability/integrity of what He’s doing for me.
However, this weekend I’ve realized that I’ve been waiting for some things to happen to further my career. I’ve met my deadlines and have submitted all of what is necessary but it just seems like I’ve been hitting ceilings or more stop signs. I’ve been praying and seeking God. Doing everything I think I’m suppose to do and even making major sacrifices for all of the work that I’m putting out. However, I have also been working and doors have been opening as if the deadlines won’t make or break me. It’s like God has built me a bridge to carry me over into good time. He’s shown me that I’m on time when I’m in His time and on His schedule. (2 Peter 3:8-9) He doesn’t want things rushed. God is never in a hurry. I’ve not had a dry season and my career is still moving forward. He’s working and having other meetings on my behalf while I’m in the waiting room. When you’re in His will, you’re always safe; even in His waiting room. With His training of budgeting, my team has still been paid on time, mortgage paid, and I’ve even had some to give. Maybe you’ve been in the same space. God hasn’t forgotten you. We get exhausted but He doesn’t. He’s infinite and we are finite. What’s good timing to Him, isn’t always the best timing to us. So, “Hang tight. The Doctor HAS to see you. It’s HIS job to see you. He’s just giving each patient un-rushed time to make sure you’re WELL.” He’s a good father, and no good father would bring a child in the world to leave you to worry and figure it out on your own. He’s there to teach you, guide you, and make the way easy.
Keep waiting!
Scriptures To Consider:

Genesis 18:14 Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, about this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son.”
2 Peter 3:8-9 But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
