"Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” 25 The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; 26 it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. 27 It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young. 28 Let him sit alone in silence, for the Lord has laid it on him." (Lamentations 3:22-28)
Reading this reminded me of a time in my life when I would quote these verses and say to the Lord "LET IT BE MORNING." Now looking back I can see the Lord's mercy and compassion in that troubled time. Now I am in a season of favor and blessing. This verse reminded me of my dependance on Jesus and His hand that blesses and provides and not by my own strength. Thanks for the good word.ReplyDelete
interesting! two days ago this was the scripture I recorded in my journal as an encouragement. one of the hardest things to do in this fast paced society is the "wait on the Lord". however, without Him directing, it's the blind leading the blind, and we both fall into the ditch, right? I pray daily for God's provision through the Holy Spirit to be able to wait!ReplyDelete
