So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you! Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised. “For in just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay. Hebrews 10:35‭-‬37 NLT

As it is in the human life also, it is in the Christian life that the fulfilment of every promise of God takes time to come to pass.The space of time between the conception of a new life and its delivery is called gestation period. It is usually the period of development/maturity of an embryo or fetus inside the womb where the new life is kept and preserved before coming forth.

In the same manner, those of us who are in Christ requires sufficient time to grow up, established and well rooted in faith and in the knowledge of God before we can experience the performance of the promise of God.

Just as a pregnant woman will require patience, endurance and courage to carry on with the pregnancy in spite of certain inconveniences, pain and anguish associated with her state. Also, close to the time of her delivery comes the moment of travail when her pain increases and the agony multiplies. Both her life and that of the new life she carries are at great risk at this critical time should she looses strength and energy to push through.

Whatever pains, agony and trouble you may be facing now as faithful child of God are not unconnected with God’s purpose for your life. They are needed for your breakthrough and giant strides to the next level God has ordained for you. So, be patient, endure the pain, be courageous and trust God for the divine strength and energy to push through. The present troubles are not worth comparing with eternal weight of glory ahead of you. Your story will not end in sorrow, you have been appointed for joy unspeakable full of glory. You will not miss the expect day of your manifestation in Jesus nname.Good morning and do have a peaceful day.
