Lamentations 3:22-24 New International Version (NIV)
22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
WAIT FOR GOD ~
Isn't waiting sometimes very hard?
Isaiah 40:31 New International Version (NIV)
31 but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
WAIT FOR GOD ~
People speak of God's timing and our timing of things. Humans want things fast, quick and now. It is often hard to await upon the Lord. I have found in my life that waiting shows me a different outcome than I thought. God does know best for us and allowing him freedom to work is important. Last night we were in a growth group from Church and I found myself drifting back to a time I needed to wait on the Lord. Years later, I can totally see the why, but it doesn't mean I like that outcome. Not all waiting on God comes out the way you think.
Today I hope you can take time to see where God has you. Maybe it's a difficult time and you are in the waiting time. Don't give up and keep trusting God for the answer. Sunday I heard about a miracle in a marriage I have been praying for and the woman was so excited about their miracle. They are going to work on their marriage and start counseling. Wow, God is faithful for those who trust him and press toward working on things. This is just one example, because I know that all marriage don't work out and necessary to end it. Praying and seeking God will give you answers beyond your own control. This hold truth in health, finances and all walks of life.
Purpose today a good day and seek the Lord. That means to spend time with him and allow him freedom to mold you and change you. Prayer works, but it also takes you seeing somethings different at times. Maybe the miracle you waiting for seems impossible, but God says tonight is impossible through him. His timing and his plan begins to unfold daily. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
