"Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for Him!" NIV
"And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the Lord is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him." KJV
How many times have we asked the Lord, "Why?" When things are seemingly unbearable we do tend to want an answer for God as to why He is allowing this. But, by faith, we know that God is always ready and eager to bring blessing to our lives. Sometimes the blessing must follow a time of difficulty an darkness. If we will rise above our situation and wait in faith and hope, there is a wonderful blessing waiting for us.
Heavenly Father, forgive us for our little faith. Help us to rise above the trials and tribulations of this life and stand on faith knowing You are working out Your plan to bless us. We ask this in Jesus' name, Amen.
