Faith works instantly; but it doesn't mean it didn't when your desired result doesn't come instantly. This has been the undoing of many believers; they begin to have doubts when their timing doesn't agree with faiths timing. Faith may destroy a disease, but sometimes, the effect of the disease may take time to heal. The moment faith is engaged, the root of the ailment is destroyed, then the healing process begins. Faith does not have a dying patient, it only has healing patients. If it has not healed, then it's healing.
After Jesus cursed the fig tree, the disciples only saw the effect the next day. Everything that causes a tree to flourish dried up from that tree the moment Jesus cursed it, it only required one more day to have a physical effect. Some people need just one more day to begin to see the physical effects of their faith, but they allow doubt to set-in, and eventually lose the blessing. The people of Israel were already delivered from their oppressor, but it took forty years for them to reach the promised land. And the reason why it lasted for forty years was because of the numerous complains and doubts they had on the way.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; SOMETIMES IT'S NOT THE DEVIL THAT IS DELAYING OUR BLESSINGS, IT'S OUR DOUBT. CAST NOT AWAY YOUR CONFIDENCE IN GOD, YOUR BLESSINGS WILL SURELY COME. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
