Revelations 1:1, “saying, ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.’”
“A little boy once asked his father, ‘Dad does the Lord know everything?’”
“Yes son,” the father replied, “Why do you ask?”
“The little boy said, ‘Well the pastor seems to pray so long telling the Lord all kinds of things about people and I wasn’t quite sure if the Lord was up on all the details.’”
So let’s just ask the Lord to meet your needs and leave the “details” to Him.
If you study the times, Jesus helped people; you will see that each individual had a unique way to be helped by Jesus. Some had to obey a command, others where helped in days following, some were just touched, and others He only spoke a word.
The Lord knows what we need more than we do.
When we ask Him to help us we must trust Jesus to know precisely when, where and how to help us with His mighty power.
The time table Jesus has for another person may not be the same for us.
Jesus knows precisely when we will be best able to receive His benefits He gives us. Just as a doctor knows how to subscribe how many pills and when, so Jesus knows best how to subscribe the time for our benefits from Him.
Jesus also knows what needs immediate attention.
How God uses His methods for us may be different from others. So don’t anticipate how Jesus will do it, but just believe He will.
Jesus knows what needs rehabilitation and long-term care.
Jesus knows what needs therapeutic daily remedy and what needs a one-time ready adjustment of priorities and attitudes.
He knows what needs to be vaccinated against and inoculated for spiritual or physical. He knows.
Jesus has the perfect prescription for any sickness or problem we have or ever will have.
Leave the timing and methods to God and all will work out. The Bible has many examples of people not waiting on God and those that did.
Your choice. But the wise way is to wait on God. I have experienced both, to wait and trust God is best.
