Day 5 of 40
Waiting is part of the walk of faith. We wait on the Father, we say. He waits on us. People wait on us. We wait on people. We wait for the fullness of time to bring forth the will of God. We learn patience, hopefully, in our waiting. Think of how long the world waited for God to dwell among them in flesh! Waiting is part of what we do. Today, may the Lord be with us all in our waiting, especially those of us who are defiantly impatient. Here is a wonderful song from Clint Brown called Waiting on You. Breathe, and keep waiting.
These 40 days are about having and holding on to hope. As you read, watch, and ponder on these hope reminders, share them with others. Let’s hold fast to hope (Heb. 10:23), for it does not disappoint or cause us to be ashamed (Rom. 5:5). As we fulfill God’s calling on our lives, let’s receive Holy Spirit’s revelations of hope (Eph. 1:18). Hope is part of the armor for the believers in and disciples of Jesus Christ. Our God is the God of hope (Rom. 15:13). Christ in us is the hope of glory (Col. 1:27). Salvation creates in us a hope for the future (1 Pet. 3:15). The Scriptures encourage us to endure so that we will have hope (Rom. 15:4). Most of all, remember that when we need to refresh our hope, these meditations will be here waiting for us.
