Lamentations 3:25-26 “The Lord is GOOD to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who SEEKS Him; it is good to WAIT QUIETLY for the salvations of the Lord…”
Today i pray for those who are waiting. I pray you have the endurance to withstand the quiet, the patience, the strength as life crushes in and you wait for His rescue…
Lamentations 3:28-29 “Let him sit alone in silence, for the Lord has laid it on him. Let him bury his face in the dust – there may yet be hope…”
i pray that those who surround you in your quiet will help and not discourage… i pray that in the most unbearable moments you will have the fortitude to sit in the silence and know that the Lord has laid it there for the building of your character…
Lamentations 3:31-32 “For men are not cast off by the Lord forever. Though He brings grief, He will show compassion, so great is His unfailing love. For He does not willingly bring affliction or grief to the children of men.”
Let that wash over you…it bears repeating!
“FOR MEN ARE NOT CAST OFF BY THE LORD FOREVER!”
You are not being cast off! He is working in your life and the lives of those surrounding you, even when you can’t feel it!
“THO HE BRINGS GRIEF, HE SHOWS COMPASSION, SO GREAT IS HIS UNFAILING LOVE!”
His compassion, His unfailing love is ON IT’S WAY! Wait for it!
“FOR HE DOES NOT WILLINGLY BRING AFFLICTION OR GRIEF TO THE CHILDREN OF MEN!”
We live in a sin-filled, destructive world, where values are compromised every day and love has monetary value. God does not WILLINGLY bring affliction or grief in your life, but He will use it to build you, to grow you, to infuse your life with His character so that you may pour into the next person that comes into your life and shows His unfailing love thru you.
Today i pray that His compassion and unfailing love shine bright in YOUR LIFE!
