Spiritual Depression: Delayed Hope.
“And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus?”
“And Sarai said unto Abram, Behold now, the LORD hath restrained me from bearing: I pray thee, go in unto my maid; it may be that I may obtain children by her. And Abram hearkened to the voice of Sarai. And Sarai Abram’s wife took Hagar her maid the Egyptian, after Abram had dwelt ten years in the land of Canaan, and gave her to her husband Abram to be his wife.”
Yesterday, we considered the meaning of Depression and Spiritual Depression; in relation to unanswered prayers. Today, in furtherance of this topic; Spiritual Depression, we will be looking at Delayed Hope. Delayed Hope is simply, “Not receiving your expectations as at when due.”
Meanwhile, due to delay in fulfillment of Sarai’s fruitfulness, she was not happy and she decided to help her situation, through an alternative mean, which later leads to her sorrow and shame. As many of us use to do, with the mindset of helping God for our own benefit.
Furthermore, when there is a delay, frustration will set in, through which unreasonable ideas will flood the mind, this often leads to taking rash decisions that could terminate or reduce one’s glorious destiny, in no distant time.
Finally, the psalmist says; Psalms 37:9
“…but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.” And in Psalms 62:5 he says, “My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.” Beloved, there is blessing in waiting on God and when you wait on Him, your expectations will not be cut short. May God remove every barrier on your way today in Jesus name. Amen.
God bless you.
Till He returns or call you home, do remain in the power of His love.
*Jesus is coming very soon.*
I will patiently wait on God. For my expectations comes from Him.
Father in heaven, you rule in the affairs of men and with You, there is no iota of failure. Remove from me, every barrier on my way and send frustration far away from my dwelling in Jesus name. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
B. J. Folorunsho.
