Interesting quote from “Abraham: One Nomad’s Amazing Journey of Faith”

Hi – I’m reading “Abraham: One Nomad’s Amazing Journey of Faith” by Charles R. Swindoll and wanted to share this quote with you.

“We don’t like waiting, but that’s when God does some of His best work on our souls. When I’m forced to wait on God’s timing, I change. Sometimes I discover that my request was selfish—not part of God’s agenda at all. Other times I find that my level of maturity could not yet bear the blessing God wanted me to enjoy; I had to grow up so I could handle it well. Very often, my circumstances needed to change, or the blessing would have become a burden. As we see Abram’s faith journey unfold, we’ll see why he had to wait so long to receive God’s promised blessings.”
