Have you ever heard someone say, "I am waiting on the Lord"? I have been guilty of saying these very words from time to time. We pray, we fast, we cry out and there is no answer. It is as if heaven has become closed like brass and we feel as if no direction comes. We wait and wait... Some people never step out into their full potential and destiny God has for them because they are in the continual posture of waiting to hear from heaven.
Faith is the substance (confirmation, title, deed- that which already belongs to you) of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (perceiving as real fact). Hebrews 11:1
