“I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me….””
“For the revelation awaits an appointed time…. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.”
(Habakkuk. 2:1,3 NIV)
As I wait on You, Lord, my strength is renewed. [Isaiah 40:31 “Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.” (NASB)]
My hope is in You, Lord. I will wait for You. At the appointed time, You accomplish Your purposes—as You did with the coming of Jesus and His life, death, and resurrection.
I choose Jesus. And trust Him,
And remember His love and patience and kindness.
I remember the cross.
I reach for and grab onto hope. I hope in Jesus.
Yes, my hope is in Him.
When I’m tempted to focus on frustrations, disappointments, and loss, let me choose to get my eyes back on You, Jesus. May I gaze upon Your goodness and take in Your glory. I need to keep looking to You, the Author and Finisher of my faith (Hebrews 12:2). Amen.
