God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
— Psalms 46:1 (KJV) —
Sometimes it’s so hard to wait.
In our Bible study this week, we talked about the urgency of Christ’s coming, and reflected on Revelation 14:12: “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.” We realized that one of the signs of a follower of Christ is that they have patience. Patience as we wait for His second coming, patience with our fellow believers, patience in God’s timing.
Right now, I’m personally faced with several decisions looming on the horizon. I don’t know the answers right now, and it’s difficult not to stress about what will happen. Sometimes I’m even scared. But this verse reminds us that patience and trust in God is everything. And if I lean on Him, He will strengthen my heart to face every outcome.
His timing is always perfect. “Wait on the Lord. Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord!”
— Psalms 27:14 (NKJV) —
