It is not wrong to wait for something or wait on God but you will be wasting if you don’t know that the waiting is over and it is time to take action. The truth is; there is no right time, the right time is now. It is not every time you pray that requires waiting because sometimes the answers come instantly and what you need do is to be sensitive to it.
Look at what happened to a certain man at the pool of Bethesda who wasted thirty-eight years waiting for the angel to stir the water before he would be healed while his miracle was under his nose.
John 5:3-4 says, “(3) In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the movement of the water (4) For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had”.
What a horrible situation! Thousands of sick people waiting for a certain time to get healed and one person was to be healed. Isn’t that serious?
Now Jesus came to the scene, He never waited for the angel to stir the water, He healed him immediately and left. The man was the only person healed, why? I thought Jesus would heal more people but He withdrew from the multitude (John 5:13). I will tell you the reason.
The reason is that none of them believed they could stir the water by faith and get healed. They never acted or believed there would be a way out except the angel appears. They were all blind, lame and paralyzed spiritually. Your miracle is by your side but you are too afraid to stir it up. You are waiting for someone or the right time to receive the answers to your prayers instead of possessing it.
The man that was healed never knew Jesus or heard of him. Jesus healed him to stir up the faith of others as the angel did but they were spiritually blind to understand the things of the spirit. Stop wasting your time waiting for a great opportunity, the opportunity is right at your door step, right under your nose. Your prayer has been answered but your mind is too clouded, unsettled and unstable to concentrate and see it.
What have you been waiting for? What have you been believing to happen in your life? What have you prayed to achieve? Don’t be surprised that God had answered you but the problem is you failed to focus.
Stop waiting, stop wasting, stop guessing, stop digressing and start progressing.
