Precious Disciple of Jesus Christ, the Daystar,
Do you feel as though God has forgotten about you? Does it seem as though He is silent despite our persistent prayers for deliverance?
Let me assure you that God is not silent. He has His pulse on everything you are going through. He is simpy waiting for the perfect moment to deliver you.
Consider Lazarus. When Jesus received the news of Lazarus’ illness, why did Jesus wait two days before going to see him? By the time Jesus arrived, Lazarus was already dead. To the natural mind, Jesus had come too late. Yet, Jesus came at the perfect moment for God to receive the most gory and at the perfect moment for His purposes to be fulfilled. By waiting, Jesus greatly glorified God and furthered His Kingdom by raising Lazarus from the dead.
Our Lord is waiting for the perfect moment to intervene in your life. That moment is the moment when God will be most greatly glorified and you will be most blessed. As long as you are in faith, do not be troubled by God’s silence. He is simply biding His time until the right time. At the right time, your wayward daughter will come to Christ, your pain will disappear, your financial situation will turn around.
As our Lord is patient, so must we be patient. He has not forgotten about you. He is simply waiting for the right time to deliver you.
Your sister in Christ,
Dr. MaryAnn Diorio
