The only way to possess, inherit, obtain and apprehend the promises of God—including any words, goals, plans, dreams or visions he’s placed in our hearts—is through faith and patience,
just like the writer of Hebrews told us: “We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised” (Hebrews 6:12).
Maybe you have a dream, a goal, a plan you’ve been working toward for years, and you feel God has forgotten you.
Whatever it is, God has not forgotten you.
The dreams, visions and plans God places in our hearts take time, lots of time. And during all that time, God is working in us so he can work through us.
Our part is to exercise faith and patience. Faith is believing God, believing that God is who he says he is, and that he will do what he said he would do.
Patience is our capacity to tolerate delay—our ability to wait. It’s trusting that God is good, God does good, and God knows what he is doing, no matter how long it takes—no matter what our purpose is.
