Jeremiah 42:7 (KJV) 7 And it came to pass after ten days, that the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah.
God is under no obligation to respond to us right away.
God is sovereign even in relation to our prayers, petitions and questions. This doesn’t mean though that there are times when He’s unaware of our situations; He’s fully aware about everything we and everyone else is going through. He’s aware of everything going on—at all times.
But He’s perfect in His timing as well—always. He knows how, when, and where to grant us what we’re asking for, whether they be ideas, or things. Let’s not take His seeming and momentary silence personally. His silence doesn’t necessarily mean it’s because there’s something wrong in us. It’s not apathy in His part or sin on our part.
We trust Him. His people live in faith. Faith includes patience, perseverance, and persistence.
