Why Is God late?

Yes, this blog is late, but what a perfect opportunity to ask a question; why do we feel that God is usually late when it comes to fulfilling our promise. I would say that this is the most common question that I have had placed to me in my multiple years of ministry and the answers to questions that are constantly asked.
The first thing that we need to deal with is the spirit of anxiousness which is always pounding on our door telling us that we need it now, or even worse we need the pain to end now. Last year I suffered what was the most acute pain I had ever experienced in my own body. Cellulitis had developed on my legs and it left me with 17 oozing sores that literally dripped puddles of oozing puss wherever I stood. At this time the prophet Timothy Snodgrass was visiting my house. He prophesied that I should go to the doctor and I will begin in a poverty clinic and I will find myself in the house of the king. The fact was that I had no health insurance and so I was worried about going to any doctor because the price of the medical bill scared me. When Timothy Snodgrass left my house that day I spent the next 12 hours walking quietly in pain through my house. For some reason the pain seemed to be less when I walked so all night long I walked around and around my house. The strange thing was that I seemed to have come between the balance of hurry-hurry I need to get this situation fixed in my leg and wait-wait the hospital bill is going to put you in worse pain of death. To my amazement it actually balanced out and I was content to wait on the Lord to go to the doctor.

The next day my wife Sandy took me to the Haight Street clinic and within a day I was in Kaiser Hospital and found out that somebody had secretly bought me health insurance. But of course I’m not talking about the financial miracle I’m talking about the miracle of me beginning to control my spirit of anxiousness. It was an incredible process of learning to spiritually slow down. Each day it took over an hour just to change the bandages, which in the process my skin was incredibly sensitive because the bandages would dry and stick to my skin and then have to be removed. This process was so slow and took so long to begin to slow down everything in my life but in actuality it began to speed me up on God’s time.

The phenomenon that I am talking about is actually getting on God’s time. God’s time is actually the place of true spiritual authority, And all of the blessings that come with it. Let me give you an example: If you do your best ideas you will probably affect 10 to 50 people. If you do God’s best ideas you will affect 10 million to 50 million people.

By slowing down and letting God control every step of your journey, through His spoken Word, you increase the size of your impact upon life exponentially. In other words, slowing down and listening to God gives you the ability to do God’s work all day long. Isn’t this exactly what Jesus said in John 5:19; “So Jesus explained himself at length. I’m telling you this straight. The Son can’t independently do a thing, only what he sees the Father doing. What the Father does, the Son does.”

So there it is in a nutshell. The answer to living a perfect life is also the answer to sheer joy.
