May 1 – Delay Is Not Denial


Read the lessons of Divine control in Nature’s laws.

Nature is but the expression of Eternal Thought in Time. Study the outward form – grasp the Eternal Thought, and if you can read the thoughts of the Father, then indeed you know Him.

Leave Me out of nothing. Love all My ways with you. Know indeed that “All is well.”  Delay is but the wonderful and all-loving restraint of your Father – not reluctance, not desire to deny – but the Divine control of a Father who can scarcely brook the delay.

Delay has to be – sometimes.  Your lives are so linked up with those of others, so bound by circumstances that to let your desire have instant fulfillment might in many cases cause another, as earnest prayer, to go unanswered.

But think for a moment of the Love and thoughtful care that seek to harmonize and reconcile all your desires and longings and prayers.

Delay is not denial – not even withholding. It is the opportunity for God to work out your problems and accomplish your desires in the most wonderful way possible for you.

Oh! children, trust Me. Remember that your Maker is also your Servant, quick to fulfill, quick to achieve, faithful in accomplishment.  Yes.  All is well.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than
 your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.  Isaiah 55:9

    1. The God Calling devotionals are broken into two pages per month to make them easier to read. On the left side of the screen in the navigation page, under God Calling Devotionals, you should see a link that says May 16 – 31 with the second half of the May readings. Let me know if you have problems with these displaying for you!
      Blessings to you and yours,
