But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. Habakkuk 2:3
God sees your life from His eternal perspective. He will take whatever time is necessary to grow your character to match His assignment for you.
