The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and He delighteth in his way. Thought he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: For the Lord upholdeth him with His hand. Psalm 37:23-24.
We may feel like things are not moving fast enough in our lives. we know that we should be further along in life, but someone or some circumstance crippled our faith. Our hopes and dreams were never fulfilled. You know you should have finished school: You know you should have been a business owner by now, your rapping career should have taken off by now. By society`s standards, you should already be married and have 2.5 kids by now.
Do not give up because you will get there. I was on my way home and on any given day it would take me about one hour, but this day it took me 4 hours to get home, what happen? it was a traffic jam. In life sometime we have traffic jams to no fault of our own. Sometimes God allows the jams to come because he is getting us ready or He is working behind the scenes to get others ready for our arrival. God has not forgotten about your dreams and hopes, He is the one who gave them to you. Genesis 37:3-5 ‘ Joseph had dreams. It took years, however, for those dreams to be fulfilled. In spite of the tragedies in his life, Joseph never let go of the dreams God had given him. On the outside, Joseph was a have-not rejected and despised by his own brothers. God had plans for Joseph long before he was ever sold into slavery. while in slavery and in prison, Joseph was not experiencing conditions that indicated he was going to be successful. He did not look like a man marked to be a great leader, but he was. Joseph did not blame God for his Traffic Jam, his former troubles, instead he realized that God`s hand had been on his life all along. Jeremiah 29:11 ‘ God said I know the plans for your life, plans to prosper you and not harm you. Delay does not mean denial. Stay in the car, pray and worship Him, the traffic will start moving again.
