When life has dealt us devastating blow after blow ;and our mind and body are physically, emotionally, and otherwise depleted of strength. When the will and hope to go on, has faded, we must remember that we serve and have a God that becomes our strength when we are weak. God becomes our shelter when we are homeless, our rock when we are drowning, our shepherd when we are lost, our lawyer in the courtroom and our doctor in sickness. So when we are at our lowest point in life, as long as He lent us breath for another day, it means we have hope, grace, mercy, and love. What we do with it is up to us. Do you give it back by wallowing in self-pity or do you pick up the pieces and allow God to lead and guide you?
Most of the time we get impatient while waiting on the Lord to answer our prayers. Isaiah 40:31 tells us that, they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up on wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary they shall walk and not faint. Then Lamentations 3:25 tells us that the Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him. Later, verse 26 says it’s good for a man to both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.
While waiting we should build up our trust and confidence in God by remembering where He brough us from, because Lamentations 3:22-23 tells us that it is by the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not; they are new every morning, great is His faithfulness, morning by morning new mercies we see.
Then Psalm 23:6 reminds us that without hesitation or shadow of doubt, He guarantees us goodness and mercy everyday as long as we live. Now this is a win for life promise that is authentic, not even the lottery can give such a promise. Jesus gives us eternal life that the lottery ticket Win for Life cannot guarantee. because God’s promises are yea and amen (2 Corinthians 1:20) and He is not slack concerning His promises and He does not lie(2 Peter 3:9). Which is better, a win for life ticket to heaven or the one the lottery sells in New York?
The main thing God wants us to remember and get during our waiting period is to look back at the things you have been through that He has delivered and set you free from and humbled you like He did Saul, who was later named Paul while traveling on the Damascus road. Then put all your hope and trust in Him because no good thing will He withhold from those who love Him and walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11).
