There is Purpose in the Process!
Today I was reading a post on facebook about what David did while “waiting” to be king. Thinking on the life and times of King David, and about the processes he went through long before being crowned king, I can’t help but think about “the process” we must go through in life before the promises of God are fulfilled. Many of us who belong to the Lord are going through a time of transition. Like in birthing, it is a narrow and uncomfortable place to be. Pregnancy is a great example for us because we know that if a woman gives birth too early (even though she may be ready for it to be over) the baby will have difficulties surviving. So it is with the promises of God.
Maybe you are waiting to hear a specific prophetic word for your life to give you direction. Perhaps you have had a prophetic word spoken over you that has not come to pass. Some of you may be so tired of receiving prophetic words that haven’t come to fruition, that if you hear one more, you will gag. However, it is important to remember David was anointed king long before actually becoming king. He wisely trusted in God’s timing and did not try to usurp King Saul’s authority. How many of us would have believed that after being anointed king by the prophet, it would be fulfilled immediately? At the very least – much sooner than it was! But here is what we must remember: David spent a lot of time alone in the wilderness tending sheep and worshipping God. He was used to waiting; he was used to seeking God’s face. The question is, are we? Have we received a promise but have our own timing in mind? I can’t help but think of Abraham having to wait all those years for his promise of a son to come to pass…but that is another story! The question is – what will we do while we’re waiting?
