Blessings that come with waiting

Daily Thought

Your Word for 12 July 2024

Genesis 17:1
When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to him and said, ‘I am God Almighty; walk before Me faithfully and be blameless.’

When we waitProverbs 20:22 Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you.
God is the one who ultimately settles scores. Many people find themselves in situations that are difficult and unfair.  But God wants to be our deliverer.  Here again we see this concept of waiting and the resultant reward of being delivered.
Do you need the deliverer to deliver you today?  Keep on waiting in constant expectation.  Wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you.

Isaiah 30:18 Yet the Lord still waits for you to come to him so he can show you his love; he will conquer you to bless you, just as he said. For the Lord is faithful to his promises. Blessed are all those who wait for him to help them.

There is a blessing for those who will wait for God in constant expectation that He will help them.  God wants to be good to us.  God wants to show us His love.  God wants to bless us.  God wants to be faithful to His promises.  God wants to help us.  Sometimes it involves waiting and this scripture tells us that those who are living in this time frame can know His blessing.
