"And the LORD smelled a sweet savour, and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more everything living, as I have done.

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease" | Gen. 8:22-23

Just last week, I noticed the new spring blooms of flowers off-sprouting from our trees in the garden. It was such a delightsome view. New shoots. New scents of the flowers. And then, I noticed what was inconspicuous: The trees had grown taller and had wanted to spread their happy palms!

I will write this blog today, in plain, simple language that everyone can understand. Possibly with no scriptural references other than the one quoted above, if possible. Because many of you are beginning to doubt if God still remembers you - and the promises He made to you many years ago! I am hereby issuing an eviction order to your doubts in the name of the Lord: The true and living God Whom we serve has a strong, impeccable memory. He never eternally forgets His promises and covenants. Men and women may forget what they said, signed, or vowed. But not God.

I think what gets under our skin is how would He do it? Now, if you do not seem to see the 'how', this could be a result of the blindness the daily pressure of living brings with it! And that, by every means, is fine! I said 'fine' because our God is not limited like we are!

Humans are limited in sight, thoughts, insight, foresight, and hindsight. We are made redundant from work, for example, and we suddenly are gripped by fear of how to pay our bills! But the hands that flung the stars into space in their elliptical orbits - with not a single star or planet ever colliding with the other say: "I've got you!"

Listen: God's got you in more ways than you ever could think. He won't let you fall. Never!

Having said that however, He may be re-directing your course(s). Oh yes; ever since time immemorial, God re-directs the courses and/or the pathways of His children. But they must be willing to tread that pathway. Or else, as the Bible says, if they are rebellious and hard to direct/steer - that is stiff-necked - they will dwell in a dry land | Psalms 68:6.

That above aside, the Lord may allow the delay to come upon the ways of life of the saint. Sometimes, to develop their muscles of faith. Or at other times, just because the saints in question are not yet able to comprehend the magnitude of the call/promise. And until they are ready, the manifestation of glory tarries! In other words, God waits upon people's readiness, sometimes.

Other times, manifestation tarries because God is preparing them to prepare the oncoming generation to inherit the promise as was in the cases of David providing all the materials for the building of the Temple, and Moses, preparing Joshua! Do you know why? Because God's covenants often come with the assurance to be transgenerational!

Finally, God in His wisdom permits the devil to sweat the big stuff so that in the end, He can turn each of his caprices into foolishness, and take all the glory. You read of the story of Jesus Christ's resurrection of Lazarus who had been dead and buried, past time, back to life again. And the same power of resurrection by the Spirit of God raised Jesus back to life again on the third day, literally after He too had been crucified, dead, and buried. If God did remember His Son, Jesus Christ, He sure will remember you and I. It's as simple as that! | Compare with Romans 8:11.
