A Delay is not a denial

Hebrews 10:23
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful

CG Discussion Points

  1. What does it mean that “delay is not a denial” in relation to prayers and the promises of God? Have you ever experienced this in your life, and if so please share with the CG?
  2. What can the passage about Simeon and Anna teach us in regards to waiting on the promises of God? Can you relate to their situation (Luke 2:22-32, 2:36-38)?
  3. What can be some of the different reasons for delayed prayer answers or delayed promises from God (Daniel 10:11-13)?
  4. As we wait on the promise of God or the prayer answer what do we need to recognize and do? What kind of mindset do we need to have  Philippians 4:8)?
