Why God’s way takes longer? 2

“He leads the humble in what is right and teaches the humble his way.” Psalm 25:9

God’s way is always the best, even if it does take longer. Though we may not understand why things happen the way they do, we can trust that God has a plan and is working in our lives for our ultimate good. Let us be patient and allow God to do His work in our lives, knowing that He is always faithful even though the world is always in a hurry. We are constantly looking for the easy way out. We want things to happen quickly and don’t want to wait. We are so impatient that we are often willing to take shortcuts that can ruin our lives.

Let’s look at Psalm 92:7, which says, “That when the wicked sprouted up like grass and all who did iniquity flourished, it was only that they might be destroyed forever.” And Psalm 92:12 says, “The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, he will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” There are a few interesting points about the psalms 92:12 and 92:7. The first is that they speak to the endurance of the righteous. The palm tree and the cedar are both examples of plants that are able to grow in difficult environments and flourish.

1 Corinthians 2:14 says, “The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.”

The second point is that while the wicked may prosper for a time, their eventual destruction is certain. This theme is repeated throughout the Bible. In Psalms, we see this idea expressed in different ways. Psalm 92:12, we are told that the righteous will flourish like the palm tree. This is in contrast to the wicked, who will grow like grass and be destroyed in the end. In Psalm 92:7, we are told that the wicked will flourish for a time but that their destruction is certain.

In the book of Esther, we see the story of Esther, who was able to save her people from destruction even when it seemed like God wasn’t listening. These stories teach us that the righteous may suffer for a time, but they will eventually be victorious. So likewise, the wicked may prosper for a time, but their destruction is certain. We need to be careful not to get caught up in the rush of life that can lead us astray, especially true for our relationship with God. We want to be able to go to Him when we need something, and we don’t want to have to wait for Him to answer our prayers. 2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.”

Oh Lord, help me to draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith that your way is right in Jesus’ name. Amen.
