Some of you have experienced a delay in what has been promised. You feel like you have been in a spiritual holding pattern waiting for the promise to manifest. You are beginning to feel restless.
God could be holding off your landing in a place of promise for a number of reasons - reasons that involve the positioning of people, resources and the timing of culture. You may never understand the purpose of the delay this side of eternity. That should not be a problem or hinder you in any way unless you have allowed the need to know to so preoccupy your thinking that you lost your focus.
As I write these words, I heard the Lord say, “Ask them to give me their need to know.” Immediately, I knew what He meant. The need to know the reason why something is not taking place can become our only focus. This becomes a false focus that puts us on a dangerous heading that will lead us away from the safe landing God had originally planned.
One reason for the delay you are experiencing is to give you the time needed to refocus your sight and recalibrate your thinking. When this process is complete, you will be cleared for landing. When you finally touch down in the place of promise, the delay will make sense because you will have landed in a placed prepared by God and you will see the reason why He asked you to wait. Trust Him with the timing. A holding pattern can only become a negative experience if you allow your demands to displace your trust.
