It Takes Time


It Is Written, James 1:2-3,  My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials.  Knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
It is natural for people in this world to want results instantly.  After all, we live in a world of instant everything.
People get discouraged with prayer, because results usually take a while. The average person does not realize  what is involved in the spirit world in order to answer a prayer.
As an example, take a look at painting a picture.  A photo is instant, but a piece of art takes time.  First you find a place to work.  Then you have to get the lighting right,  get a canvas, paints, and brushes.  All of these steps must take place before you even begin to paint.
When you pray according to the Word, your results start to take place in the spirit world. There may be a hundred things in dozens of places, all timed perfectly, in order for you to get your answer.  It can take a minute, a day, or a year, so keep your faith.
A word of warning.  Fear, doubt, and worry stops the process. When you get true faith back, the process starts all over again.  Just as an artist sees the result before the picture is even started,  you must see your answer.  A painting is one brush stroke and color at a time until it is finished.  At some point the artist is one brush stroke from the finished work.  You may be one minute from the answer to your prayer.  Don't give up, trust in the faithfulness of our Lord to get it done.  Have a blessed day.  Praise The Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer Of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
