"And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise." Hebrews 6:15
There is a time of "obtaining". A time when our faith shall become sight and we no longer have to wait for the promised blessing. God made Abraham a promise but He did not give him a time table upon which to base that promise. Instead, God gave him His Word- His own promise that what He had said would come to pass.
The promises of God are yes and amen. When He makes a promise, He is faithful to fulfill it. He doesn't get our hopes up and then tell us He was just joking. Neither does He tell us something that is a lie. He is God, He cannot lie.
Hold on to His promise that He has made to you. Trust that He will bring to pass what He has said. Don't get frustrated because of time elements. Wait patiently and believe that what He has said, He will do. We won't always be waiting for the promise, in due season we will obtain it.
Have a great day. There is a time when we wait for the fulfillment of the promise of God and there is a time when we obtain it. We may wait for a while but then we will obtain.
