THOUGHT OF THE DAY.
God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits,
to the woman who diligently seeks.
It’s a good thing to quietly hope,
quietly hope for help from God.
It’s a good thing when you’re young to stick it out
through the hard times.
When life is heavy and hard to take, go off by yourself.
Enter the silence. Bow in prayer. Don’t ask questions:
Wait for hope to appear. Don’t run from trouble. Take
it full-face. The “worst” is never the worst.
Why? Because the Master won’t ever walk out and fail
to return. If He works severely, He also works tenderly.
His stockpiles of loyal love are immense.
He takes no pleasure in making life hard, in throwing
roadblocks in the way:
Lamentations 3:25, 36
What an amazing passage of scripture. There is so much to take
from it. What stood out for me was this verse that said,
‘wait for hope to appear‘
A lot of us have abandoned hope because what we were
trusting for didn’t come to pass.
We thought God abandoned us. But the word is very clear,
‘wait for hope to appear’…..
When all hope is gone, wait for hope to appear.
When life is hard, wait for hope to appear.
When trouble comes, wait for hope to appear.
Wait for hope to appear!
No matter how bad things seem, wait for hope to
The word is very clear:
“It’s a good thing to quietly hope,
quietly hope for help from God.”
We can hope because the Lord will never walk out on us,
He will never fail to return to us, the word tells us.
Hope can return. I may have given up and lost hope but
it can return! I will wait for hope to appear. God will not
let me down.
Don’t abandon hope, instead wait for it to appear!
