Ps 13:1 How lengthy wilt thou neglect me, O LORD? for ever? how lengthy wilt thou hide thy face from me?
As we are on the subject of the trials of faith, 1 of the foremost tests for a disciple of Jesus is the trial of waiting. Or what we could contact “Divine Delays“. If you come across oneself waiting, if you believe the Lord has passed you by, if you come across that the Lord has delayed beyond your expectation, take courage. You are in superior enterprise. All the saints of God have gone by way of this method. Abraham, Moses, David, even in the new testament the saints of God have waited fearfully for a lord who seemed delayed. But try to remember, the eyes of the Lord are often on these who wait on Him and whose hearts are great towards him. A rapid search in the Old testament on the words “How Extended” yields a wealthy set of verses of the heart cry of the dear ones who waited for the Lord Ps six:three Ps 13:1 Ps 35:17 Ps 79:five Ps 80:four Ps 89:46 Ps 90:13 Ps 94:three Hab 1:two Zech 1:12
Does God need to have our tips ?
In the above Psalm, David (1 who was right after God’s personal heart – to whom the Lord revealed the greatest truths in that dispensation) goes by way of a period exactly where he fears that the Lord has forgotten him and exactly where He has seemingly hidden His face from David. In Psalm 40:17, the saint of God cries out that he is poor & needy and to not tarry, but to come to his support quickly. You cannot speed God up! Isa 40:13-14 says: What man has taught God or been His counselor ? We might but face even physical anguish as we wait for the lord! (Psa 69:three) Certainly the guarantee of God says: Psa 25:three – these who wait on the lord shall not be ashamed. In some of the earlier posts, I’ve written on this subject. I think this is 1 of the most popular, But most tough tests of a christian disciple. Read these two posts for some thoughts on the exact same.
A Family members that Jesus loved
John 11:five-six – Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. But when he heard that Lazarus was sick, he stayed exactly where he was two much more days
Is the Lord cruel to wait when His dear buddy is sick unto death? The Lord’s appreciate is not an assurance that His loved ones shall not endure or go by way of dark nights. But His appreciate is certainly an assurance that He will be with us in these troubles. He will not leave us nor forsake us. Although you are waiting, you might believe the Lord could have accomplished much better (John 11:21). But as Jesus told the grieving family members in John 11:40, only Think and you will see the Glory Of God. The much more He is producing you wait, the much more is the glory that will be manifest.
James five:7 – Through the instances of delays and waiting, sow the valuable seeds patiently. And as a farmer rejoices not at sowing but when the fruit comes, you shall also rejoice certainly. Heb 10:36 reminds us that we need to have to patiently wait and do the will of God ahead of we reap His promises. The light momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory. As Job says: (Job 23:10) He knows the way I take. when He has attempted me, I shall come forth as gold!
We faint not!
two Cor four:16 Therefore we do not shed heart. Although outwardly we are wasting away, but inwardly we are becoming renewed day by day. two Cor four:1 – given that we have received this ministry by God’s mercy, we do not shed heart.
Getting these promises, dear buddy, do not shed heart. Hold on to the Lord.
David cries in his despair 3 instances – that his soul was downcast. He addresses his soul’s disturbance and decides ” I will but praise HIM”. Psa 42:five, Psa 42:11, Psa 43:five Praise Him, even though you are but to see Him move and certainly at the correct time, He will move heavens in your favor.
