Wait for it

God, how long do I have to cry out for help before you listen? Habakkuk 1:1a (The Message Bible)

Is this your heart cry? Have you cried all night long and it seems no answer is forth coming? 
Is discouragement beginning to set in?

Prophet Habakkuk wrote the bible passage above, he was a man of God but he had reached that stage where it felt like God was not coming through for him so he said to the Lord,  'for how long?

Even the Psalmist said in Psalm 61:1 'Hear my cry, O God;  attend to my prayer, so whatever it is you are passing through now is not peculiar to you.

Martha said to Jesus 'Lord if you had been here my brother would not have died in John 11:21.
In other words, Lord you didn't answer my prayer or responded to my request to come heal my brother for if you had he wouldn't have died.

Have you ever felt that way and now you don't understand anymore or don't know what to do or feel like packing it all up?

Here is the good news: Jesus told Martha in verse 23, your brother will rise again and yes, her brother rose.

Prophet Habakkuk later got a message from God in Habakkuk 2:3, though the vision (promise) might tarry (delay), WAIT FOR IT because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

God hasn't forgotten what he said to you, he keeps promises and even though it might delay it will surely come to pass.

Please wait for it.
