Begin to Possess

A great deal is said in the Bible about waiting for God. The lesson cannot be too strongly enforced. We easily grow impatient of God’s delays. Much of our trouble in life comes out of our restless, sometimes reckless, haste. We cannot {wait} for the fruit to ripen, but insist in plucking it while it is green. We cannot {wait} for the answers to our prayers, although the things we ask for may require long years in their preparation for us. We are exhorted to walk with God; but ofttimes God walks very slowly. But there is another phase of the lesson. God Often Waits For Us.

We fail many times to receive the blessing He has ready for us, because we do not go forward with Him. While we miss much good through not waiting for God, we also miss much through {over-waiting}. There are times when our strength is to sit still, but there are other times when we are to go forward with a firm step.

There are many divine promises which are conditioned upon the beginning of some action on our part. When we begin to obey, God will begin to bless us. Great things were promised to Abraham, but not one of them could be obtained by waiting in Chaldea. He must leave home, friends, and country, and go out into unknown paths and press on in unfaltering obedience in order to receive the promises.

God is waiting to pour richest blessings upon you. Press forward with bold confidence and take what is yours. ”I have begun to give, begin to possess.” {Streams In the Desert}
