Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled. Romans 15:4
Lat Monday, we talked about how peace and prayer go together. All you have to do is ask Jesus for peace through prayer! God pre-paired these for us!
But…what if “all you have to do” does not feel simple or peaceful because your struggle is so incredibly hard? What if simply praying does not bring peace?
Like me, maybe you did not feel peace because it didn’t make sense to have peace during such a tough trial.
Patience and Promises…Patience is not given, but rather accomplished by practicing it. When we make a decision to trust God in trials, that means we patiently wait for His answer in HIS time.
Easier said than done, when God hasn’t answered our prayer right away, right? We need to remember, though, that He has promises we can lean on! He will never, ever leave us. If that is the only promise He ever gave us, it is plenty!
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.2 Chronicles 15:7
These are promises inspired by the creator of the universe! We may not understand why God allows things in our lives, but we can be perfectly positive that He loves us. He shows us and promises us that our hope in Him is in great hands!
Today’s Take-a-way: Faith in God’s promises brings patience, which brings peace!
With love from the Father to you, have a wonderful day:)
