“For they shall not be ashamed who wait for me” – Isaiah 49:23
Waiting is not fun. Waiting tests your patience. Waiting can deplete your faith. Waiting can wear you out.
But there is a promise of God.
Isaiah 49: 23 – “For they shall not be ashamed who wait for me”
Psalms 34: 22 – “The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, And none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.“
Romans 10: 11 – “For the scripture says, Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”
In Psalms 42 & 43 David speaks to his soul
Psalms 42: 5 – “Why are you cast down O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.”
Psalms 43: 5 – “Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope In God: For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.”
When we don’t wait on and trust God completely, we can do great damage. If that has happened in our lives, all we can do is repent, completely turn towards God and decide and purpose in our hearts to wait on Him with the help of His Holy Spirit.
Lord Help me today to wait on you. Lord you have never failed me not even once. I thank you that I will not be put to shame as I wait for you. Heavenly Father, today I repent of the times when I couldn’t wait for you and broke your heart because I took matters into my own hands. Lord Jesus I realize people may fail and disappoint me but you never will, so I will wait for you. With all my heart. Expectantly. Excited. Exuberantly. Jesus I will trust you and by faith believe your promises for my life. Thank you that you don’t disappoint and my soul will trust in you!
Wait on Him( Jesus!) beloved, He will not let you down!
