God of Suddenlies

Waiting is the hardest thing to do when you are trusting God. And it is very tempting to grow weary and lose hope.

I was thinking about the growth of a bamboo tree and how it can so easily represent what God is doing in our life. It may look like nothing is happening, but in God’s “suddenly” HIS will, will begin to unfold in your life!

In its first year of planting a bamboo seed, we see no visible signs of activity. In the second year, again, no growth above the soil. The third, the fourth, still nothing. Our patience is tested and we begin to wonder if our efforts (caring, water, etc.) will ever be rewarded.

And finally in the fifth year – behold, a miracle! We experience growth. And what growth it is! The Chinese Bamboo Tree grows 80 feet in just six weeks!

Had the tree not developed a strong unseen foundation it could not have sustained its life as it grew.

Have Faith! Dont lose HOPE! God is fulfilling your desires!
