Keep waiting never give up,the Lord will answer someday

Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
PSALM 37:7
Life has felt pretty crappy lately.

It’s been hard to wait for the Lord to bring relief. Rest. Peace. Joy.

We know God is faithful. We know that he’s good and he loves us. But it’s so excruciatingly hard to wait for the Lord to act. To move. To deliver. To rescue.

Thankfully, Scripture itself is a story of waiting. Abraham waited for a son, Joseph waited for deliverance, David waited to be made king, Israel waited for a Messiah, and we all wait for the return of the serpent crusher.

God’s Word has much to say about how we wait. Biblical waiting isn’t passive, like waiting for a train to arrive. It’s an active, aggressive sort of waiting.

So how do we wait for the Lord in a way that honors Him, fills us with hope, and gives us strength to carry on even when we feel like we’re in the dark?
