The Waiting Game

Description

To have faith is to trust that God will do what He says He will do. This is the essence of the Christian walk; it is part of our salvation and our continued journey with the Lord.

Habakkuk 2:4

"Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith." NKJV

Faith...That one word is very pregnant with meaning, but at its root, "faith" is trusting in God. To have faith is to trust that God is going to do what He says He will do. This is the essence of the Christian walk, and it is part of our salvation and our continued journey with the Lord. The hardest part about faith often comes in the waiting. God has promised us many things, including His return, yet our waiting for that to happen can be difficult. This is why it's important to trust what God says over what we see around us.

When we look at the world around us, we see corrupt governments, sinful behaviors and the devil wreaking havoc in people's lives. This causes us to cry out, "Lord Jesus, come," but as we pray this, we also need to walk in faith. We need to trust that God's plan is better than ours. He may be allowing the suffering to continue for a little longer so that others may come to salvation through Jesus. The good news is that one day He will return and when He does, all things will be made right and our world will never be the same. This is not a fairy tale, this is reality. Yes, we believe it by faith, but our faith is in the One God who has proven Himself faithful time and time again.

Life Lesson: When Christ returns, the world will be remade, our flesh will be made new and the devil will be destroyed.

Dear God, 
Thank You for the promises in Scripture. Give me the faith to trust in those promises regardless of what I am feeling or what I see in the world around me. I believe with my whole heart that You are God, that Jesus is my Savior and that He will one day return. Give me the power to share this message of hope with all those around me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
