In the meantime.....

Me: Soooooo God, I have prayed, cried, made a dream book, wrote a song, met with a prayer group, what do I do in the meantime while I
am waiting on my breakthrough?
God: You wait.
Me: Whaaaaaaaaaat? That's it? Just wait?
God: Yes, wait.
Yup, that's what He said. Just wait... That's the interesting thing about praying and getting them answered. God wants us to know that He is the author and the finisher of our faith. He has the ultimate say in all matters. Regardless of what it is.
So in the meantime, we need to understand what the may journey bring us. New friends, new experiences, learning something new, ministering to others, you just never know .The meantime is the most important part, not necessarily the journey.
When training for the marathon, you're not practicing for the actual finish line, you are training for every step that you take to get to the finish line. That's the same thing with God and this thing called faith. Preparation is necessary for success in anything. The only instruction manual that is provided for life is the bible and faith is mentioned:
422 in the NIV
378 in the American Standard
227 in The Message
509 in the Amplified
336 in the King James
474 in the English Standard.
625 in the Contemporary English
379 in the New King James
347 in the American Standard
460 in Today's New International Version

Now, I think that's saying A LOT. Faith is probably one of the most important aspects of your relationship with God, other than Love of course. So during your "meantimes" of life, understand that it is all apart of the plan. Just when you thought God forgot about you, your prayers, and your struggles, he shows right up and blesses you!

Read these scriptures:

Eccl. 9.11 ...... that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

Psa. 27.14 Wait for the Lord; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.
Psa. 37.9 For evildoers will be cut off, But those who wait for the Lord, they will inherit the land.
