An Outcome of Hope
“but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wing like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
As God’s children, we know we sometimes have to wait for an answer to a prayer. We place our request with Him and we believe He will answer as He sees fit. This belief is a form of hope. Our reliance on Him guides us through until God acts.
We have the Lord to help us through those dry spells, when we aren’t as strong as we’d like. Some people deal with chronic disorders the many forms of arthritis, diabetes, various muscular problems. Some of us have difficulty going from sitting to standing. It is then that I have a quick chat with the Lord. “ Please, Lord, on the count of three: one, two, three.”
When God hears us ask and sees us wait on Him, He is pleased. He smiles down on us and we feel His presence. The Lord gives us the courage and strength we need to continue on with our endeavors.
We should always wait patiently and thank Him for what he has done for us.
