When Will It Come To Pass?
When you pray for patience, God begins to put you in very slow-moving situations, doesn’t He? Or He puts you around annoying people, or some who just rub you the wrong way. It is the same when you pray for a gift of healing, prophecy, or any other gift – You have to go through an endurance period in order to get that gift. There are many different tests and things that happen in our lives that shape and mold us as the Potter’s Hands begin to do the work to get us to move into the work we’ve asked to do.
A lot of times we’ll murmur and complain and cry out about our situations, but we’ve forgotten what we’ve prayed and asked Him for. The process has begun. When things start coming apart, remember that we have many examples in the bible of people who went on quests that shaved off the flesh.
