This scripture struck me as I walk in faith waiting for breakthrough in my life with the mountains I face before me…
I wait and stand firm on His promises in the deep dark place of sorrow, as my feelings and senses keep saying to run… enough is enough. This is too hard!
But God you keep saying; “Wait. What did I promise in my word? My word stands true”.
“Even when things are unfair and unjust…you are the maker of justice my Lord. Justice is not mine to decide. My job is to trust and wait on you for your promises to prevail in the deep of the deep. That is enough for today.. knowing God that you are greater than my circumstances and you are bigger than the mountains I face before me…
You are enough for me today and your word stands true. Not by my strength but by your power alone. I cannot move ahead without you. It is only by the power of your Holy Spirit and your timing that will proceed me forward. So for today I wait, and stand on your word my mighty God, trusting that you are fighting on my behalf.
My job is to be obedient and trust that your word is true, your plans are good, and your timing is perfect. So for today I just rest in you dear father. Today you are God and I am not. Today is the day that I will rejoice and be glad in you.
Today is the day that I will choose to say yes and worship you in the midst of the pain. And that’s got to be enough for today, for tomorrow is a new day. And tomorrow I will choose to stand firm on your word once again. Forgive my anxious heart dear Lord. In Jesus name Amen.”
May this be a prayer and encouragement for us all as we go through the painful process to the top of the mountains we climb. May the Lord carry and lift you through the hard places to find victory as you wait on Him for His perfect timing in your own situation. To breathe, trust, and stand on His promises today.
