EMPOWER HER BLOG: WHAT IF GOD SAID, 'JUST A FEW MORE SECONDS'?

Updated: Apr 21, 2023



Last night, I made a quick run to McDonald’s for a medium coke.


I decided to go inside the restaurant due to the busy drive-thru and my stomach growling for dinner.


I soon managed to make it to the front counter within the lobby while casually noticing the back crew working vigorously.


I waited for a few moments for someone to come take my order.


No response.


I glanced over to two Kiosk menu screens that displayed the words ‘currently out of service’.


I continued to stand at the front counter looking back at the workers.


A few more moments went by without anyone acknowledging me at the front counter.


From my point of view, all I could see were people working passionately to serve those who had been waiting in the drive-thru line.


I looked back over at the Kiosks and noticed a different screen displaying the words 'available'.


I felt relieved!


I could finally get my medium coke.


I blissfully sashayed over to the available kiosk and ordered my medium coke.


Then, I returned to the front counter where a female store worker was standing behind the counter.


I handed her my receipt with a smile.


In return, she kindly said “You know, if you would have waited for just a few more seconds I would have given this to you for free?” as she handed me an empty cup for me to fill.


If you and I can take a moment to be honest, sometimes we treat God the same way I treated those McDonald’s workers.


When we are ready to receive something, we want it the moment we arrive at a certain place or time.


We may wait a few moments.


We may even wait a few months for God.


We wait.


Time passes.


Then, we began to casually “check in with God” hoping He hadn't forgotten about us.


We may wait a little bit longer.


Eventually, we may find another source to fill our request only to learn that if we would have waited a little bit longer God had something bigger and better for us.


Something that would have not cost us anything.


Today, I am sharing this with you because I don’t want you to find another source that will cost you.


God is a source that has unlimited access to anything.


If you need joy, God has unlimited access. Nehemiah 8:10


If you need love, God has unlimited access. John 3:16


If you need peace, God has unlimited access. Isaiah 26:3


If you need good health, God has unlimited access. Isaiah 53:5


If you need finances, God has unlimited access. Malachi 3:10


If you need freedom, God has unlimited access. Romans 10:9


Do not overpay with another source when you have God as THE SOURCE.


You must remember God stands outside of time, Honey Bunches. (Revelation 1:8)


What may seem like a lengthy time for you, may be just a few more seconds to Him.


Keep waiting, God’s up to something!
