    I learn a lot from this verse, things that I am doing without considering that God can answer me with time.I was always waiting for God to answer me immediately, now I learn that I must be patient and trust in him. I like this commends and I will follow to learn more. As from today I will always wait as per 1 Corrinthians 15 :51 Amen!
