We pray. We wait. We pray. We wait. We doubt. We wonder. Repeat.
Hope deferred makes the heart sick…from Proverbs 13:12
If we look through the Bible we will find that sometimes God puts conditions on the promises. In some areas it is “if you do…..then I will…”
I don’t think we humans can fully understand the reasoning and sometimes it feels very unfair but God is still good, merciful & gracious even when we don’t “get it”.
I’m sure the blind man would have rather not had spit, mud and to go wash in the pool *I mean he’s blind* but he went along with the plan & received his miracle.
But because he had hope and he realized his fulfillment of that desire came with a condition, he got up and did his part!
Keep hoping. Keep praying. Keep expecting.
