The Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.
Romans 15:4 (NLT)
It is so hard to wait. When we are full of panic, anger, or dread, a minute can seem like an eternity. We want to do something. When a situation drags on and on, we begin to wonder, “Will it ever end?” We start to run out of patience, but the good news is that God is there. In every situation, He can give us hope and encouragement if we wait for it. Without God, waiting is the hard part. But with God it is a totally different experience. Isaiah assures us, “They who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Paul also adds to our reason to wait on God with a beautiful benediction, “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” Today wait patiently on the Lord.
Dear Father God, the source of hope, please fill me completely with joy and peace as I trust in You. Help me overflow with confident hope through the power of Your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name.
