This is the day the Lord has made and I will rejoice in it — Halleluiah!
“Lord, I pray to you. Please listen. Don’t hide from me in my time of trouble. Pay attention to my prayer and quickly give an answer.” (Psalm 102:1-2)
Friend, if you’ve ever seen a baby bird struggling to get free from its egg or a butterfly escaping its cocoon, you know that it can be an arduous process. Yet it’s completely necessary in order for them to become strong enough to endure conditions outside of their protective coverings.
Do you feel you’ve suffered a lengthy, difficult delay in seeing God’s promises fulfilled in your life? Understand that God doesn’t make you wait in vain — it’s necessary for you to be prepared for your blessings.
So count this time of waiting as one of training and favor — because you can be sure that God is doing wonderful and important things in your life.
Please bow your head and pray:
Thank you Jesus for helping me to trust you and persevere during this time. It’s really been a struggle, but I know that you are with me and your blessing are worth the wait.
