Patiently Wait with Confidence
“Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living. Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.” (Psalm 27:13-14 NLT)
Waiting is hard. Nobody really likes to wait, right? As a society we dislike waiting in lines, in traffic and in waiting rooms. Furthermore, it is exhausting when we are waiting for our breakthrough.
Often the words confident, brave, courageous and patient are not words we would choose to describe our waiting period. Actually, the longer we wait the less confident we become, and it becomes increasingly difficult to remain patient, brave and courageous. Yet these are the words God chose to describe how He wants us to wait. He wants us to be confident that He will come through for us. He calls us to be brave and courageous, knowing full well that He has clothed us in the Armor of God and is fighting the battle for us. And finally, He asks us to wait patiently because His timing is perfect. His sovereign hand will bring our breakthrough and in due time all His purposes for our lives will be fulfilled. So walk on today, dear ones, confidently, courageously, and patiently.
