Some of us are either waiting on the Lord for one thing or the other. Sometimes it seems like there is no hope and all doors have been closed. Probably it seems like God has turned deaf ears to our prayers and you wonder where is God in the midst of all your trials and tribulations. Where was He when you cried out with tears dripping down from your eyes into your mouth and your makeup got messed up? You lamented day after day and night after night about that very thing that stole your rest and future hope of dreaming.
I am encouraging you that you are not alone, God is with you and will always be with you till the end. It is only temporary, therefore this too shall pass. Jeremiah lamented also in the book of Lamentations about the present misery and former excellency of Jerusalem. But in the midst of it all Jeremiah was able to find new hope in the the Lord and waited on Him.
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. 23 They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. 24 ”The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” 25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, To the soul who seeks Him. 26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly For the salvation of the Lord Lamentations 3:22-26 NKJV
I reflect on this and while spending time in His presence, trusting in His faithfulness to come through for me. I write
Lord you reward those who wait on You and seek You diligently
You are gracious and merciful to the righteous that can never be shaken
Lord I wait on You
Let not my wait be in vain
Open my eyes to see the good things You have in store for me
Yes Lord I wait patiently for You with high expectations
Meet me oh Lord at my point of need
Let not my wait be in vain.
I pray and hope that you have been touched and blessed by these reflective words of encouragement to keep you standing, persevering for great is His faithfulness and His mercies endures forever.
