but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
How often we feel hopeless, floundering, worried, stressed or fearful? I am only human and there are times where I find myself saying “well God you said that this would happen, why hasn’t it?”
I was recently working on the advertising for our yearly retreat and came across a picture with a rainbow in it. I felt God say remember my promise I have to Noah. I will never forsake you.
Its hard at times to gave this hope, this strength to keep going. But its holding onto that hope and promise that God has his hand on it.
And when we hang in there, hang onto the hope, the promise the break thru comes. Often its not what we thought or expected, but wow I love a good surprise.
Its like an egg, we know that the promise on the inside is of a yolk and egg white. So when we break it open, we expect to see those things. However, like this morning I got a surprise with my promise. A double yolked egg! I could have used it this morning making waffles for the kids, but it wasn’t random it was God. Giving me my promise of an egg for breakfast, with a surprise.
So don’t be dismayed that a prophetic word hasn’t come to pass, that something you had been praying for hasn’t happened. We need to put our faith, our hope into this promise and even though it is so hard. The surprise and the way it happens is worth the wait.
