Up our faith!
God rarely places dreams in our hearts one day and fulfils them the next. He begins by giving us a desire for something but then He rarely gives us the exact timing for when that desire will be fulfilled. I know what it’s like to be frustrated because you feel you have waited so long and so patiently for something that seems it will never come to pass. You know you have not waited forever, but you feel you have. You become weary, and you feel you simply cannot wait any longer. This happens to all of us including me. It is often part of the process we go through as we walk with God through seasons of waiting and as we hold fast to the promises we believe He wants to fulfill in our lives.
There is always a preparation period, and it is different for different people. I have been believing God for something for quite some time now and even in the silence i know he is speaking and working but i can’t move or take any decision until I get a cloud of confirmation. Since biblical times, God’s people have had to learn how to wait and stay faithful when it seemed nothing was happening. God always sends messages of encouragement at just the right moment.
We are all familiar with a prophet named Elijah. In 1 kings 18:1-41; God said to Elijah “Go show yourself to Ahab and i will send rain upon the earth and this was the period of severe famine in the land, a time when crops and animals desperately needed water and yet no water was available. And just when Elijah received the promise of rain from God he encountered the prophets of Baal, and a show down ensued between these false prophets of Baal. Elijah must have seemed silly with his declaration of rain because the sky was perfectly clear ( it was like waiting for rain in the drought; useless and disappointing). He sent his servant to go look for storms of cloud six times and each time, the sky remained blue and sunny. I’m pretty sure Elijah must have gotten tempted to doubt God’s promises of rain like we sometimes get. He must have been discouraged over having to wait so long. But guess what? When he sent his servant for the seventh time, he came back with good news: “A cloud as small as a man’s hand is arising out of the sea”. This sign gave Elijah the encouragement he needed.
The years of waiting are usually difficult but very necessary. When we have a promise from God or a dream he has placed in our heart, it’s like being pregnant. Where the woman has to wait for her water to break as a sign that her time for delivery has come. There is a seed planted in every one of us by God and we need to be patient and wait for the seed to germinate.
I want to encourage us today to not only wait but diligently be on the lookout for the cloud of confirmation in our lives before we take the next step, make the next decision, move to the next stage ect. Whatever it is you are waiting for ( I am talking to myself right now), don’t give up. Be patient, stay faithful and when you feel you simply can’t wait any longer, look for a cloud. Your cloud surely can’t be same with mine but the sign will always be there no matter how small it is. #Look for it. It will come in His Perfect timing.
Up our faith!

Great post! This post connected with me on so many ways. I have been thinking about how God speaks to us and tell us things will happen, we just have to wait.
That’s all we have to do; diligently and patiently wait on him. Thank you very much my dear for your wonderful contribution. God bless you.
