When God's Working Behind The Scene.

I was on a site today watching a mason who was dressing a window frame fitted into a block wall, it was an experience worth learning from. 
.
Prior to the fixing of the frame, the wall was chiseled to create the window opening size in the wall. A lot of breaking, hammering, chiseling and removal of the blocks were done for the frame to be perfectly fitted into the wall.
.
As the frame was fixed, the edges of the window must be done to create smooth edges and corners otherwise it'll be an eyesore to the building. 
.
As the mason was doing his work with dexterity, there was a lot of plastering, watering, dry cementing, shining, egde smoothing until a perfect window reveal was achieved. I watched keenly as he uses several tools such as a range, trowel, edger and a square angle to achieve a perfect job. It took a lot of time before the job was accomplished. He ensured that no corner was left unattended to so that it can align with the existing wall.
.
As I was watching, the Holy Spirit spoke to me saying: "it takes a long process for God to make men before they're brought to the limelight. God doesn't hurriedly make men. He takes them through a lot of unbearable process of pain, challenges, hurt, bittersweet experience until they come forth as gold. God created men once but He doesn't make men in a day". 
.
Don't appreciate a man's glory if you can't pay the price in his story. Great men aren't hurriedly made, there’s a lot of pruning, breaking, moulding and emptying until they come forth as gold. 
.
God has determined your finished product before you're born (Jer. 1:5). Your alignment to His will will bring the process to a reality. You must be born again and discover His purpose for your life so that you can be instrumental in His kingdom. 
.
Are you presently in God's 'quarry' site and you're admiring others that have been made? Does the process seem painful and the devil is beaming alternatives to your eyes? Are you being pained as He's using those tools of disappointment, rejection, poverty, delay and so on to rid of unwanted things in your life?
.
Be patient, I know the process is painful. When He's done with you, you'll come forth as a gold refined in the furnace of fire. All you need is to be diligent, persevere, be consistent and tarry until you have something to carry. 
.
That He told you to wait when He's shown you the future or who you'll marry doesn't mean He won't bring it to pass. All the great men of God you're appreciating God's glory in their lives didn't just jump from heaven, they all have a story to tell before they became what you see today. 
.
God is making you for the future He's taking you into. He's making you for that man or woman He's bringing into your life. Wait. Tarry. Don't rush. Let Him make you so that you'll become His final product and be useful in your generation. 
.
"Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint" - Isaiah 40:28-31
.
Wait, I say, wait patiently on the Lord.
