“Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the Lord.” Psalm 27:14
This month in our talk about faith, one thing has been really clear to me: faith requires trust and time. Faith isn’t something that works like fast food or online shopping. It’s more like the days or weeks that people used to travel to get into town.
Those of us who are using spiritual faith with our life issues and opportunities have the reassurance of Psalm 27 to help us stay strong through the faith journey. Throughout the Bible it’s evident that even though God asks us to be patient and wait, that doesn’t mean that our faith is a mistake or not worth it. God promises that when the time is right our faith will be answered.
While you’re waiting today seek courage, encouragement and reassurance from your friends, the Bible, and other spiritual and inspirational books. Just because your journey is tough doesn’t mean you have to live with constant depression, fear or sadness. There is hope and peace to be found even in those dark days.
