Delay is a situation whereby you are expecting something but didn't show up on time. Delay can come in any form, from close friends, family and even colleagues but it is not denial. It might tarry but it might also come to pass.
>>>Delay can come by God and also by man.
In Psalm 30:5 NIV, which says "For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning." This Bible verse made us understand that God can be angry but only for a moment, many still think today after many years God is still angry with them. But No!
The only reason you can be totally denied of your expectations and your testimony block is when you speak against any anointed of God. Be careful because anointed can be a Chorister, a Pastor, a Prophet, an Apostle etc. Don't speak again these set of people in any way. See 2 Samuel 6:12-23 NIV. You will understand the gravity of speaking against an anointed.
Joseph is an example of delay is not denial. He face so much challenges that seems to prolong the God's dream for him but he remained unshakable in the strange land where no one was available to advocate on his behalf.
>>>Amazing when he choosed to be imprisoned that to sin against God. How many can do this today?
* He was put in a pit to bury his dream. He came out.
* They sold him into slavery so his dream will not come to existence. He became his master favorite. Genesis 37:1
* Seduced to kill his dream. Refused then accused wrongly which made him imprisoned and God brought in out.
Joseph dream was from a man because he told them what God has made him.
Joseph became a governor in the land of Egypt a strange land ruled by a stranger. What a testimony and his family came and could not even recognise their own blood.
All your enemies will come rejoicing at your feet with you in Jesus name. Amen
