Apostle Grace Lubega
Hebrews 11:11 (KJV); Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
Some delays in the fulfilment of God’s promises are because of the delay by children of God in conceiving seed.
The parable in Luke 8:11 is that the seed is the Word of God.
As such, certain promises take so long to manifest in the lives of believers because when the Word came, they did not conceive it. The Lord spoke concerning their destiny but they never understood Him.
It was not God’s intention for Sarah to deliver a child past her childbearing age. Delay is not God’s style of doing things. But Sarah, together with her husband Abraham, did not understand what God meant when He said He would make Abraham a great nation.
The Lord had to repeat His promise a number of times because it was obvious that Sarah and Abraham simply had not understood (Genesis 15:1-4; Genesis 18:9-15).
Child of God, you may be wondering why your promotion has taken too long yet God had spoken concerning the same. Did you really understand Him the first time?
Once you conceive the Word, the miracle shall follow.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Some delays in the fulfilment of God’s promises are because of the delay by children of God in conceiving seed. Once you conceive the Word, the miracle shall follow.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the priceless gift of Your Word in my spirit. I understand divine instructions when they are given. I know what to do when You speak. By this wisdom, I always bear the fruits of Your Word and I am never delayed, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
