HOW LONG? – Wed, Dec 05, 2018


Psalm 13:1-2 KJV

How long wilt thou forget me, O Lord ? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

[2] How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

Just yesterday, I had a brief conversation with a friend and she openly confessed that she thought sometimes God waits for too long to intervene in our lives.

In fact, almost every believer will testify to this and immediately agree that at some point in their lives when they thought God should have stepped in, He dragged His feet.
Well, the truth in that some of the patriarchs felt this too. Abraham, the faith institution himself, waited for 25years to see his promise materialize.

David, at the point he wrote this Psalm, also felt same. He wouldn’t understand why God was too slow to act. He was distressed daily.
So how long is long enough? This is the multi-million question. How long?

Time actually exists in God and not the other way round. Because man (not God) is bound by time, the need to operate within its limits usually largely overwhelms him. Though extremely hard, we need to trust and believe that He makes all things beautiful in His time (Eccl 3:11) because He is our ever-present help in time of need (Heb 4:16). Help WILL come!

Have a blessed day.
