“And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” So He said, “Come…” Matthew 14:28-29 NKJV.
“And Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, “Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you, and you shall be clean.” But Naaman became furious, and went away and said, “Indeed, I said to myself, ‘He will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God, and wave his hand over the place, and heal the leprosy.’” 2 Kings 5:10-11, NKJV,
I had a reader reach out to me and ask what do you do when you’ve taken a step of faith you believe God wanted you to take–and you have His peace about it–and now you are waiting for it to break forth and happen, but you don’t see any sign of your desired results? This was the answer God gave me and I pray it blesses you too.
Jesus told Peter to come and walk on the water to Him. Yet, Peter asked Him could he come first. Jesus answered him. What you have asked of God, what answer has Jesus given you? This is where you set your faith. As long as you know that Jesus has said to come, He has said this is what I have for you, this is what I’ve called you to, this is My plan for you, then you can wait as long as you have to for it to fully come to pass, and He will refresh you to wait on His perfect timing.
In 2 Kings 5:10-11, the Prophet Elisha told Naaman to receive his healing, he had to go and wash in the Jordan River, not another one. If you’re not seeing anything happening yet, it’s always good to check and make sure you’ve followed the Lord’s instructions. Success is in the details! Receiving what God has for you is not just based on what you do, but how and when He tells you to do it. If you know that God has spoken to you to do it, then begin to ask God if you are doing it how He told you to.
Prayer: Father, You are always able to give me just the right clarity I need every time. As long as I’m following You, everything is going to work out for me. At Your word, I’ve stepped out in faith, and I ask that You help me to remain patient and stay in faith, as I wait for it to fully come to pass in Your perfect timing. Thank You Lord! In Jesus’ name, Amen!
