Scripture Reading:- 2 Samuel 9:1-13
Topic:- Your Patience Will Work Wonder
Text:-2 Samuel 9:3
A certain guy walked into a hotel and after perusing through the menu, ordered for some food. After about 20 mins a group of guys walked in and ordered for their food too.
To the dismay of the guy, these guys got served first. He watched as they began to eat and laugh heartily. He even overheard one of them brag about how he knew everyone at that hotel and how things moved fast for him there. He felt he was being mocked. He contemplated leaving. But he had waited soo long. Unable to take it anymore, he called a waiter.
The waiter calmly told him: “yours sir is a special order, being prepared by the chief chef himself. Their orders were prepared hurriedly by students on attachement because the top chefs are busy with yours. That’s why they came first. Please have some juice as you wait”.
He calmed down and waited. Shortly after, his meal was served by 6 waiters.
Unknown to him, the owner of the hotel (who happened to be an old long lost friend of his) had seen him coming and wanted to surprise him and had made changes to his simple meal to make it a five star meal.
The party at the other table were shocked. They couldn’t stop staring. Suddenly they were the ones murmuring, asking why they didn’t get that kind of service and meal.
So it is with this life!! Some people are ahead of you and eating now, laughing at you about how they know people, how they are well connected and how they’re blessed, have money and how they’re enjoying life because of it.
You have been waiting long wondering why its taking soo long to get your breakthrough, enduring mockery and humiliation. Maybe you have contemplated suicide, gone through depression or suffered severe mental anxiety.
Do not worry!! The owner of the world has seen you and doesn’t want to give you a simple meal like those laughing at you. You’re waiting long because yours is a special meal. It takes time to prepare. And only chief chefs prepare them.
Take heart today! Wait for your meal and relax. When it comes that laughing party will be silenced for good.
1. I command every of my worry and inpatient, die by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God, all the goodness You have prepared for me, I received all by fire now, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. I command every power forcing me not to wait for my time, what are you waiting for, die by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Happy Independent Day!
