Yes, it has been a long time since you first received the promise of the Lord. You have fought the fight of faith, and now you are in the time of the manifestation and fulfillment of those promises in your life. You are walking into abundant life! Remain humble even after the Lord lifts you up. And yes, it will all prove to have been worth the wait.
22Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee
