“Still I am certain to see
the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
Wait patiently for the LORD;
be strong and courageous.
Wait patiently for the LORD!”
How often do you find yourself
trying to help God solve your problems?
Perhaps things aren’t moving fast enough for you?
I can go back through my life
and see all of the things I thought were
first, so important,
and second, that maybe God
just needed me to do something about.
It is hard to know sometimes.
Is God asking me
to take an action
or is it just me wanting to take on His job?
Worry begins to creep in to replace trust.
Fear begins to creep in to replace faith.
“So do not worry about tomorrow;
for tomorrow will care for itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
When things seem to be crumbling
around us and we think God isn’t concerned…
“And we know
that God causes all things to work
together for good
to those who love God,
to those who are called according to His purpose.”
Waiting means trusting
that God really is concerned for what concerns me.
“Trust in the Lord
with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding.”
All I know in times like this to do
Pray for guidance,
to hear His voice
and the patience to wait on Him.
“Since ancient times no one has heard,
no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,
who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.”
“I would have lost heart,
unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!”
Don’t lose heart,
God is good
and He will strengthen you.
