I once heard a pastor mention that he waited six long years to win the affection of his future wife. The Founding Pastor of People’s Church in Sri Lanka, Pastor Colton Wickramaratne received a vision from God in 1957 about his future ministry. He had to persevere through many delays and challenges before the large vision became a reality.
When I began my career in radio broadcasting, I waited three years to get a proper break on the radio station. I almost quit, but thankfully God came through at the right time and my broadcasting career expanded thereafter. A number of couples I know prayed earnestly for a child for many years before the prayer was answered.
All these stories have one common thread; delay.

Are you troubled about an answer to a prayer being delayed in your life? Have you almost given up? Do you feel like God is denying you His blessing?
No one likes delays. We live in an instant world, filled with instant food, instant noodles, online banking, quick promotions, quick turnovers and rapid solutions. Any delay therefore, is uncomfortable. God however, has His own timing in our lives and He can turn the delays into ‘Divine Appointments’. His delays are not denials. Through the delay, He is building our faith and our character.
Therefore trust God through the delays of your life. God’s delays are not denials.
Any delay can lead to a divine appointment. Any divine appointment will bring divine blessing.
From hopelessness to prominence
This short video is based around the book of Esther. It shows us that the delays in our life can be turned by the Lord into divine appointments. It covers the life of Mordecai and how God raised him from a hopeless place to a position of prominence.
Lord, help me to trust you through the delays in my life. May I have the faith to believe that a delay does not mean that you have not heard my cry. I ask this In Jesus’ name. Amen!
God is never too early; He’s never too late; He’s always on time!
