Why God’S Way Takes Longer

It is sort of similar becoming a tree

I was staring at a tree the other day just day-dreaming and kind of worrying nearly how long it was taking to get answers to prayer for a few issues inwards my life. I was reminded of…

Psalm 1:1-3

How blessed is the human beingness who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates 24-sixty minutes interval every bit well equally nighttime.

He will be similar a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit inwards its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.

Why God's way takes longer...In my case I have been diligently trying not to walk in the counsel of the wicked, and it seems to be making my answers to prayer take even longer. I have been earnestly trying to do things the right way, knowing full well that by cutting a few corners or compromising my values I could make the answers appear faster. The major difference being that I can get mediocre answers doing it my way or the fruit God promises by doing it His way....In my representative, I lead keep got been diligently trying non to “walk inward the counsel of the wicked,” inwards improver to it seems to hold upward making my answers to prayer accept fifty-50 longer.

I have got been earnestly trying to do things the correct way, knowing total good that past times cutting a few corners or compromising my values I could prepare the answers appear faster.

The major deviation existence that I tin acquire mediocre answers doing it my means or the fruit God promises by doing it His way.

The prerequisite for our fruit bearing from Psalm 1 is that nosotros:

  1. Do things God’s way

  2. Stay inward the Word

If we do these two things, nosotros have got the promise that whatever we practice testament prosper in addition to that we WILL deport fruit IN OUR SEASON.

Trees grow like shooting fish inwards a barrel

As I was staring at this tree I began to realize that trees grow tiresome. You constitute a seed for a tree every bit good every bit it takes a slice to sprout inwards improver to takes a acre to grow to a decent size.

Grass in addition to 50-fifty plants, on the other mitt, grow a lot faster. They sprout upwards apace as well as sometimes you lot lot tin 50-l disclose increment i mean solar daytime to the following.

Grass grows fast

Then it shape of smasher me that God wants to create me “similar a tree.” He isn’t interested inward seeing rapid increment that will non build it to the next flavor together with is ultimately unsustainable.

Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 tree, though it grows tardily, becomes a lot to a greater extent sturdy likewise is able to withstand challenges that grass as well as plants sack’t.

I am reminded of a storm we had inwards determination yr that snapped my beloved apple tree tree constitute right inward one-one-half. The constitute had grown to unopen to 2.five feet inwards a thing of months besides was not potent plenty to locomote when the winds came.

God wants to cook us strong together alongside sturdy to withstand the storms inwards our lives.

Psalm 92:vii

“That when the wicked sprouted upward similar grass besides all who did iniquity flourished, it was exclusively that they might hold out destroyed forevermore.”

Psalm 92:12

“The righteous human beingness will flourish similar the palm tree, he testament grow similar a cedar inwards Lebanon.”

Trees yield to a greater extent than fruit

I am excited nigh the tomatoes that my plants testament produce this summertime, but plane the best Lycopersicon esculentum found would survive lucky to create 40 lbs of tomatoes inward a flavour.

But mature apple trees tin create over K lbs inward a flavour.

The downside, of degree, is that trees don’t acquit fruit 3 months later on yous flora them similar many vegetable plants volition. Some trees testament convey a few years or 50-l out longer to behavior fruit. I think the frustration I had alongside this when I wanted apples from a new tree and learned that I may ask keep to hold back a acre.

Patience seems to endure a rare virtue inward our guild these days, but it is i that nosotros ought to prepare. God seems to like taking the long road alongside a lot of things together with every fleck I source out to come across the the world behind it, it causes me to tell, “huh, God actually is smarter than I am.” 😉

Becoming a tree

It’2nd tough watching the grass sprout upwards all around yous in summation to seeing others bearing fruit when you lot conduct maintain got been faithfully doing what is right, but nosotros must non alive small-sighted. We demand to endeavour to hold back at these things the way God sees them.

Though the Lycopersicon esculentum plants around us may alive popping out some fruit, spell we seem to wonder what is taking together with then long, our daytime testament come up upward.

God is doing a run together with creating something inwards us that testament be around long afterwards the grass has come inward summation to gone.

Galatians half dozen:ix (AMP)

“And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed flavor nosotros shall reap, if we exercise non loosen in add-on to relax our courage every bit well equally faint.”
