This is what I’m digging out of Well #2.
I was sitting in the deer woods while I had this thought.
It was windy and raining as I waited on my buck to arrive.
Have you ever been waiting on something?
Like a package, or a gift you know someone has sent or put in the mail,
but when the weather is severe and the roads may be closed,
the conditions, that aren’t in your favor,
don’t look like you will be getting it any time soon?
It takes me back to the day of Pentecost.
Jesus has already told his disciples He was sending them the Holy Spirit.
He told them to wait.
Waiting is the hard part.
That part between the Promise and the Manifestation.
The part where conditions don’t appear in your favor.
Same for the early disciples. They were surrounded by Roman soldiers who had just crucified their Lord.
(*Good song to look up here; This is How I fight my battles- no coincidence, the first one that pulled up is Upper room Worship!
“It May look like I’m surrounded, but I’m surrounded by you.”)
But, praying and waiting,
despite the conditions,
because that’s what Jesus said to do,
they received results, and so will you and I if we wait, as well.
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. James 1:4
Let… is the key Word here.
God knows what we need before we even ask.
The Holy Spirit has Already been promised to everyone who believes on the Name of Jesus.
Just like every other promise in His Word.
Your conditions may not be favorable right now, but You serve the God of Favor and He can send your gift better than any Fed Ex truck around.
He can weather any storm and get what you’ve been promised to you no matter what the condition.
The question is….
Are you expecting the delivery?
