So we should not be holding God in contempt because we need to wait on Him for an answer. When we judge God with anything outside of being faithful – who He is (cf. Heb. 11:6), then there is a problem that needs to be resolved in our hearts toward him. The error of our ways must be exposed and dealt with accordingly, and until then we will always find an occasion not to trust him. The lesson is to identify with who He is –Faithful, and standby/wholeheartedly agree with that truth (Heb. 11:11; cf. Mark 8:27-31). And it’s only after receiving this knowledge into our hearts that Jesus can begin to teach us, share with us and show us things to come (Jerm. 33:3).
Furthermore, our waiting on God should not be something that’s even up for discussion with our flesh or the devil. God is simply using these opportunities of time to mold us, shape us and perfect us to become more like his Son in some way. Let us not forget that the whole purpose of our salvation is that were predestined to be conformed unto the image of His Son (Rms. 8:29).
A word of caution: God does not cause evil or can be tempted by evil (Jam. 1:13; Jn. 10:10-11; Matt. 7:11); however he will cause all things to work together on our behalf for good (Rms. 8:28). So be careful not to fault God for something he has already planned - “good” for you (Jerm. 29:11). Check your signals to make sure you have not misinterpreted the situation (cf. Job 23:10) or misaligned your perception because of an un-renewed mind. (cont'd)
