“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction.” – Romans 12:12
When everything seems to be going wrong you may feel overwhelmed by your problems and want to give up or try to solve them in your own strength. But remember, the Lord has promised to never leave nor forsake you.
However, you must have patience because you cannot hurry or prescribe to God. He does everything in His own perfect time and way. God sees the big picture of your life- He is all-knowing and all-seeing.
Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you to wait patiently on the Lord. Then, with childlike trust, you can leave everything in God’s hands. Those who stand steadfast in affliction receive God’s most precious gifts from His treasure house of mercy.
Lord and Father, I find peace of mind in trusting you completely. Amen.
