Growing Your Perspective - Habits of the Heart

Growing Your Perspective

[God said,] “I will send terror ahead of you to drive out the Hivites, Canaanites, and Hittites. But I will not drive them out in a single year, because the land would become desolate and the wild animals would multiply and threaten you. I will drive them out a little at a time until your population has increased enough to take possession of the land.”

Exodus 23:28-30

God’s decision to slowly drive out the Hivites, Canaanites, and Hittites was actually for the Israelites’ good so he could protect them and ultimately provide more abundantly for them.

Was there ever a time when God didn’t fully answer your prayer right away?

As you look back, what blessings came during that time of waiting?

What are you waiting for now?

How might your wait yield far better results than if you got what you asked for now?
