Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” Psalm 27:14 NIV
Often we have trouble waiting on God. We become impatient and forget who plans our days. We forget to trust in the timing of His will and need to be reminded there’s a reason for the seasons of our lives.
Sometimes, we’re not ready for what’s to come. We need time to learn how it feels to welcome the strength of the Savior. But, when we open our hearts and learn to faithfully trust, God helps us embrace the gift of a patient heart.
Doubt will allow us think God is not working in our lives. But, He is working! He is preparing us to manage our days. He will arm us with everything we need to welcome His peace. And, He will bless those who put their hope in Him.
Christ will teach us to trust. He will remind us how to be faithful, when doubt tries to squelch our joy. He will guide, provide and help us welcome calm. He will help us remember there’s much to be learned while we WAIT…And, He will provide great strength, if we humble our hearts to receive it.
“The secret to being patient is focusing on the HOPE not the doubt.”
Dear God, Thank you for Your presence in our lives. Fill us with peace, as we seek You with all of our hearts. Teach us to be patient, as we trust the timing of Your will. And, strengthen our hearts while we wait on You. Help us find peace in our patience. Allow us to recognize why blessings will come, if we will remain faithful. Amen
