Some years back, I observed that a building site was perpetually at the foundation level; even though labourers were always busy working on it.
Not being able to contain my curiosity anymore, I opted to engage one of the labourers for clarity.
“Oga, why una still dey for foundation level for this building till now, the other building just beside this one have been completed since, but na this one dem first start?”, I enquired.
madam no be so o, that building and this one no be the same na.
Na high rise building we wan construct for here o, so the foundation needs to be very solid, else the building go collapse o. The other building na bungalow” he said, laughing at my ignorance.
“Hmmm…Ok”, I responded getting the picture clearly.😊
See, I don’t know where you presently are in your life, and it seems like it is taking God forever to birth your heart’s desire.
You have fasted your stomach sour, sowed seeds till your bank account is reading red. And you have almost began to question your faith.
Yet you probably have watched those who are far from devoted to God get His speedy answers, and now, you’re like: Hello Lord, I’m still here; when will you deliver on my project?
But the more you pray, the more sealed your heavens seem to be.
Hear me, please:
God is making out of you a mighty edifice.
When an edifice is being erected, it takes months, or possibly years to get completed — but when it stands, it can clearly not be ignored.
He has said for your shame you shall have the double. For all the years you have been looked down on. All the years you’ve bee. laughed at. All the years you’ve cried your eyes blue. Yes! For all the years you have waited for a change, God knows a bungalow will hardly suffice. And that’s why He has promised to restore.
Restorations don’t come without BONUSES. Else it isn’t restoration, but replacement.
Your high rise building will stand for all to see, and you will be celebrated.
It doesn’t matter the area it has been delayed. You will jubilate…hallelujah.🙌🏻
Caution! Caution! Please.
While you wait, do what waiters do: serve.
Your faithful service is your memorial.
So, don’t let anything or anyone make you temper down on it, and as surely as the Lord lives, you shall testify.
