Recently I was going through the account of creation and I realized a few things.
There is a difference between creation and formation.-Compare Genesis 1:27 and Genesis 2:7.
Creation happens in the spiritual, Formation is the physical manifestation of what has been created in the spiritual.
Now that’s interesting, but this is the part that blows my mind away, there is a time lapse between creation and formation.
There are certain promises/prophecies that have been spoken into my life. The day they were spoken, they became created. Some of them have been formed and quite a number are still awaiting formation.
I need to let God finish the Job.
Waiting is not fun, delays are not interesting. But God uses it.
He’s teaching us patience.
I also realized that the order of creation is not always the order of formation. The order in which you received the promise /prophecy may not be the order in which it is fulfilled.
Stop preempting God, He’s got the blueprint.
I need to let God do it in his own order.
Like a friend of mine and pastor will say: Give God time to bless you. Every farmer knows that there is a time difference between seed time and harvest. Give God time to bless you.
You are God’s creation. Allow God to complete the job. Don’t short circuit the process. Wait out the time lapse. God’s not left the workshop, He’ll finish the job.
I need to let God finish many things in my life.
Lord, teach me to wait till I’m fully formed.
Who’s with me?
