You prayed, you pleaded, you fasted, and you’ve waited. There are some things you pray for God gives you almost immediately, and there are some that you wait for what seems to be an eternity…things that you hid from yourself after such a long time of waiting, like meeting the mate God has for you. But, you waited until you were weary of waiting. After awhile, you decided that it just wasn’t meant for you to have one. You decided that a mate was just something you could live without. It was not a material request, but that one that you felt would meet your spiritual and/or physical needs, but you gave up on it long ago.
When those prayers are finally answered and God puts someone right in front of you, the denial that it’s really there is physically overpowering. Sometimes you fear that it’s not real, or that the enemy is playing tricks with your heart and mind. But, when God does send you someone, it’s up to you to receive and embrace them. Instead, you shun them, or sabotage the chance of being with that person for the next half of your life. In your mind, is it that there is no longer room for true love with another human being in what you’ve come to be? But, that longing is still in your heart, since we were uniquely created to be connected to another person.
You probably never considered the fact that you had to go through a long period of preparation in order to receive that person and know of how to love and care for them. They too may have been in a preparation stage. God can’t bring together two people who are not both totally prepared for the union. So be cautioned that if you choose not to accept your blessing at the time it pleased God to give them to you. Once you give the gift back, you may find yourself praying for God to re-present them to you, and it could be an even longer wait. Then, you’ll be left wondering what the possibilities could have been, or how much more fulfillment your life could have held if you would have only believed and accepted them. How much happier could you be spending the remainder of your years? How much closer it might have put you to God as one, because of your undying faith? So, don’t laugh when your prayer is finally answered like Sarah did. Just know that it is yours to have if you still want it. Never give up on the excitement of what is to come, no matter how long it takes!
Remember Isaiah 40:31 which says, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up on wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
