Receiving from God in Faith the Answer with Perfect Assurance that it has BEEN GIVEN,
Is not necessarily the Possession of the Gift we have Asked for.
At times there may be a long interval before we have it physically.
In other cases we may enjoy at once what we have Received.
When the interval is long we have need of Faith and Patience.
We need Faith to Rejoice in the Assurance of the Answer Bestowed and to Begin to Act Upon the Answer though for the present there is no visible proof of its Presence.
