Are You Waiting on God? Part Six.
“Wait patiently for the LORD; be strong and courageous. Wait patiently for the LORD!” Psalm 27:14
We may feel like God has forgotten us or that He’s not listening while waiting. But the truth is, God is always with us. The Bible is full of verses about waiting on God. For example, in Psalm 27:14, David writes, “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take courage and wait for the Lord.” While waiting on God can be difficult, it is important to remember to be strong and take courage. In Isaiah 40:31, God tells us, “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
Enduring difficult times is never easy, but with the strength of Jesus, it can be much easier. Just think about all the things Jesus endured during His life on earth. He was betrayed by one of His disciples, arrested illegally, and sentenced to death—all while He was completely innocent. But even through all that, Jesus never gave up. He knew His Father was always with Him, which was enough to keep Him going.
Psalm 31:24 says, “Be strong and courageous, all you who hope in the LORD.”
When going through tough times, it’s important to remember that Jesus is right there with us. He may not always take away our pain, but He will never leave or forsake us. He is always willing to help us through whatever we’re going through. Don’t be afraid to reach out to Jesus; remember, His grace is sufficient for you, and His power will make you perfect in your weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9).
Waiting on God can be difficult, but it is worth it. David encourages us to be strong and courageous in today’s verse. Do not let the negativity of this world consume you. Instead, be positive, have faith, and keep your head up. Trust in God always as you are waiting for Him to act. We can find strength in Him, and our courage will be renewed. Remember, God is always with you. Psalms 28:7 says, “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore, my heart greatly rejoiced; and with my song will I praise him.”
1. Thank you, Jesus, for your grace upon my life and household. I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
2. I decree that every arrow of negativity, affliction, confusion, and frustration fired into my day, back to sender now in Jesus’ name. Amen.
