Everything in life happens at their appointed time. Without adding words to words, below is what Linda Ikeji has to say about waiting for the perfect time and why God does not grant all our heart desire at once.
Her Full Note:
Oprah Winfrey said ‘You can have everything you want, but not at once’…and I agree. If God gave you every single thing you wanted all at once, will you even remember Him anymore? Will you continue to seek Him? So sometimes I think he just holds some things back from us so we know He’s God. It doesn’t mean He won’t give it to you, it just means He’s not ready to give it to you yet.
That’s why you see everybody pursuing one thing or the other…lol. If it’s not a success, its career; If it’s not money, it’s a good job, if it’s not husband/wife, it’s a child; if it’s not pain, it’s an illness. We are all in pursuit of happiness and I think God made it so!
But here’s what you should remember. That He hasn’t given it to you yet doesn’t mean he won’t. God’s timing is different from ours. We just all need to have the patience to wait on His timing instead of forcing our own.
No matter what you do, never give up on God and remember that once you seek him, He will never leave your side. He’s watching and when he feels the time is right, He will give you some of what you seek…and some more… Have an amazing day!
