Wait for Me.
I don’t want to wait, Lord. I want to know now. Please make this stop. Please just help me now.
Okay, well it would be a whole lot easier to do that if you would just tell me what exactly I’m trusting you about.
“Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these?” (Isaiah 40:26)
Yes, yes, you did. You created everything. Thank you for doing so. But I’m kinda still feeling a little hung out to dry here, so could we bring this back into focus? I’m floundering here.
“Oh, Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, to love Him, and to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul…” (Deu 10:12)
You’re right. I’m sorry. This is just really hard. I’m feeling helpless. Really, really, helpless.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Cor 12:9)
“We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” (Rom 8:28).
“Cast all your anxiety on the Lord because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).
“The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love” (Zephaniah 3:17).
“For God is greater than our hearts and He knows everything” (1 John 3:20b).
“His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires” (2 Peter 1:304).
So wait for Me, daughter.
“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
I will wait.
I will trust.
I will follow.
“Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts” (Isaiah 26:8).
Yes, Lord. Yes, Lord. Yes, Lord.
