WAITING WITH HOPE

 
Psalm 119:114


"You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word." NIV


"Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word." KJV


Where do we go when life has dealt us a terrible blow? How do we cope with the trial that is set before us? What are we to do, when we don't know what to do? We wait. We wait under the wings of our God, our strong tower, our refuge. We wait there for the promise He has given us through His Word. His Word is sure and will never fail us. We wait with praise and thanksgiving for what He is doing and for what He will do for us.


Heavenly Father, we confess that we become distraught and discouraged when we cannot fix the problems facing us in our lives. We try to run ahead and take care of them ourselves only to find dead ends. Help us to rest in Your shadow, in Your loving arms, waiting for You to accomplish Your purpose in Your time. Give us assurance that it will be well with our souls and unending joy and peace are coming. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
