Be encouraged everyone, DELAY IS NOT DENIAL. If we could only see what is really happening, NO ONE would be trying to FORCE anything to happen.
Permissible will is not as complete as Perfect will... Oh shout long enough and try to force it and you will get a partial blessing.
HANG IN THERE and let GOD continue working this out and when its time for our blessing, SUDDENLY we will see and experience the WHOLE package, nothing missing nothing broken. Here is a good word from our Loving Father God.
Push discouragement away from you, and do not allow the shawl of sadness to hang upon your shoulders. I have marked your efforts, says the Lord. Your perseverance has not escaped my notice and I will be certain you receive your reward.
Though the night is long and tiring, still, is it not written, ‘Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy’? Consider this, and lift up your face to Me.

"Have you forgotten that My name is 'The Lord of Hosts'? I have given the word, and it is the word of deliverance. You will prevail! Every evil plot will be foiled, and every evil enemy shall fall before the sword of the Lord of Hosts. My Kingdom is sure. My will is determined. My name is your guarantee.
"Do not be double-minded, and do not doubt this confirming word; for these are the days that men's hearts will fail them as they see coming upon the earth the things that I revealed would come to pass while I walked among men.
But did I not also caution, 'Do not allow your faith to fail'? Lift up your head, for your redemption – your victory – draws nigh. I say that victory is drawing nigh even as you quietly sleep. Can you see it drawing nigh? I ask you again, can you see it drawing nigh?
"Fix your eyes upon My prevailing army. It is My provision for My people, My heirs. You are not alone! I have told you it is not a few, but many, that ride the circuits of the heavens.
"Your salvation is sure; it was bought with a price. The battle is not yours, but it is the Lord's. See the salvation of the Lord. Rest in it, and rejoice in it. The greatest and most notable victories are even at the door.
"Adjust your praise accordingly. Train your lips to begin to express the depths of your worship. Be creative. New expressions of the soul will bring new depths of glory not previously known.
"Your redemption is drawing near very rapidly. Be sure that you draw near to your redemption. My word to you this day is, 'Look up! Look up!' The heavens are already declaring, 'Look up!'"
