Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. Psalm 27:14 NLT
At some time in our lives, we will feel the weight of human sadness and the heaviness of our souls. But Christ will help us find HOPE in His presence, so we will be courageous and brave. He will help us understand the need for His compassion and love.
When we stand in the worry of wonder, we must remember why we’re not alone. Jesus lifts us from fear and reminds us who is handling ALL things. He places HOPE in our hearts and guides us to the Father. When we’re stuck in ditches of doubt, He pulls us back where we belong and holds us for a while. He helps us learn to TRUST God’s timing…
God hears our prayers! He knows how to heal sores of the soul and bandage wounds of weakness. He takes care of each one of us! When we become weary and impatient for better days to come, He provides STRENGTH to endure.
The Bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5. We don’t have to figure out everything on our own! Peace WILL come if we surrender fear and allow Jesus to carry our burdens.
He knows about sadness and pain. Jesus overcame the cross and brought light to the darkness, HOPE for the weary and the promise of eternal life. God’s will was fulfilled by the Savior. We can count on Him to restore our lives.
God WILL FIGHT THE BATTLES! He has plans for the future. Jeremiah 29:11 provides these comforting words… “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
We must TRUST God’s timing, learn to be patient and faithfully persevere. God will guide and provide! He is ABLE to do what we cannot. We must wait for God to reveal His will when the timing is right. We must focus on finding STRENGTH for TODAY and never forget God has already planned our tomorrows. He will ALWAYS take care of us and those we love.
Dear God, when our lives are turned upside down, love us through worry and sadness. Open our hearts to experience the love of Jesus! Help us remember what He endured on the cross. Thank you for bringing light to the darkness and guiding us where HOPE is found. Forgive us when we forget to TRUST in the timing of Your will. We will be patient and wait for glimpses of good to remind us better days will come. Help us welcome the PEACE of Your presence and remember where STRENGTH is found. We will NOT be afraid when we’re held by Your holiness! Thank you, Lord! Be with us and those we love. Amen
