Parallel Requests

7/28/2019: It is common for Christians to want something from God that has not materialized as yet while God has something He wants from the Christian so what they want can materialize.

For instance, God always wants to know His Word is operational in the Christian, while the Christian desires the fulfillment of their prayer request. While the Christian impatiently waits for the fulfillment, the Lord wants to know if Habakkuk 3:17-19 is operational in the Christian even if the fulfillment never happens.

God wants to know if the Christian can walk out this Word, “Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:
Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.”
