Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!
Sometimes in our lives, we are faced with circumstances we have no control over. We have tried all we believe we should do, yet the situation remains unchanged. I know of a devoted man of God who prayed for about 5 years concerning a troubling situation. Despite the waiting time, he persisted in trusting God’s perfect plan for his life.
In waiting, you can experience frustration, you can also be tempted to give up. God is encouraging us to be strong in our waiting time. Wait for the Lord, be strong, fix your eyes on Jesus and wait patiently for him. He will surely deliver you, he will not fail.
Our waiting time is an opportunity to show God how genuine our love for him is
