What Is God Waiting For? Jan 4, 2007
Many Christians say they want to grow in the Lord; but what happens when the cost of maturing in Christ requires waiting?
Pastor Marlinda Ireland's book, What Is God Waiting For? addresses why God allows believers to endure seasons of delay.
This book is packed with personal and Biblical illustrations on the reality of God's presence and provision during our times of waiting. What Is God Waiting For? demonstrates that our delays are not always a result of being disobedient to God. In fact, many times God is trying to give us fresh new perspectives on our circumstances and the people around us. Regardless of how we may feel, God is always at work: whether it's in us or on the people in our circle of influence.
One of the other issues that Pastor Ireland focuses on is fasting and prayer during our divine delays. She clears up many of the myths about fasting and shows the reader how to use it as a means of staying in tune with God.
No matter how long one has been saved, every believer will experience times of waiting: a time where nothing seems to be going as planned and everything is off-schedule.
However, this book will help the believer to see that God has a purpose for every divine delay we endure.
