There comes a point in your life when you need to quit talking, pause the prayer and launch out in faith. God might have already answered your prayers, but waiting for you to receive it by taking an action.
Behind any answered prayer is an instruction to obey. Too many people spend too much time praying on a matter because they are not sensitive to instructions. Until you begin to obey and take the first step of faith, you may not receive your answered prayer.
I know the fear is still there, you are not feeling alright about it, or don’t seem to have the capacity (the resources and the connection you think you need), but that’s what faith is all about—looking beyond your fears and taking a step.
God is a God of process. He could populate the whole earth at once with thousands of human beings, but He didn’t do that. He chose to begin with just a man and his wife. That’s a lean startup: starting small and growing big. He took a risk with a man, and guess what? He even regretted! Why are you scared of regretting, when God was the first Person to regret.
He (God) wants you to start where you are with what you have and follow the growth process. If He loves you He may not jump the process for you because it’s for your own maturity!
“Don’t sit there watching the wind. Do your own work. Don’t stare at the clouds. Get on with your life.”
Ecclesiastes 11:3-4 (MSG), for “Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.”
Ecclesiastes 11:4 (NLT). “If you wait for perfect conditions, you’ll never get anything done!” (Ecclesiastes 11:4 NIV)
