EMPOWER HER BLOG: WHAT IF GOD SAID, 'JUST A FEW MORE SECONDS'?
Updated: Apr 21
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.
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.
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!
