How to Wait on God With Confidence - Beloved Women - February 17, 2021
READ: “I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord: be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” (Psalm 27:13-14 ESV)
TODAY'S ENCOURAGEMENT: The hardest thing to do in a season of waiting is to believe that we will see God’s goodness. How can we trust God when our vision is screaming: “I don’t see anything! I’ve been hoping, praying, and seeking, but I still don’t see anything, Lord.”
As an army encamps David, he finds comfort in the unseen--in the spiritual work God is doing. (Psalm 27:3) This is work that can’t be seen with natural eyes, but only with eyes of faith. Is there a circumstance waging war against you? We may not be facing literal armies like David, but as we wait for God’s deliverance, we can too share his confidence.
Choosing to see life’s war zones through the lens of God’s strength, goodness, and faithfulness requires courage. When waiting is tough, this courage can be found in God’s word as we hold fast to His promises.
So hang on, Sis. Be strong and let your heart take courage. View your battle with eyes of faith, and wait with confidence in the Lord.
PRAY: Heavenly Father, You are working and moving in my life on a daily basis. Thank You, God. When progress in my situations seems at a standstill, please help me to look forward in faith to see Your goodness in the outcome. I love you, Lord. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray. Amen.
REFLECT: How can you prepare to go through your next waiting season with eyes of faith? If you are in the midst of one now, how can you practically commit to having confidence in what God’s doing?
