One day last summer, as I’m driving through my subdivision toward my house, I notice the mailman on one of the side streets.
When I see the mail truck, I get excited because I was expecting the delivery of a book I had just ordered from Amazon.com.
I’m thinking, “Yeah! My book is here!”
When I check my mailbox, however, my book isn’t there.
Nevertheless, I realize that since the mailman is nearby, it’s only a matter of time before he’s in front of my house.
Likewise, it’s possible that it’s only a matter of time before God turns on your street and pulls up to your address to deliver the answer you’ve been praying for, the need you’ve been hoping for, and the solution you’ve been looking for.
