He always comes through, if you wait.

“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-19

The Lord promises His people that He will always make a way. Just because you don’t see how it will be done, doesn’t mean He can’t and won’t do it for you. You may be in the last hour, running out of time, wondering how and when God is going to come through like He said He would. Sometimes, it can be tough waiting on the Lord. But He always comes through.

He always comes through, if you wait on Him.

His Word tells us, “The trying of our faith produces patience” (see James 1:3). Maybe your faith in God is being tried and you are having to trust and depend on Him like never before, but God says, He will make a way out of no way for you. Stay vigilant. Stay persistent. Stay in faith. Look for His way out like you’re looking for lost keys. Saying to yourself, I know it has to be here somewhere! And, it is. Don’t lean to your own understanding, wait on God. He is the same yesterday, today and forever (see Hebrews 13:8)!

He always comes through, if you wait on Him.

Prayer: Father, you are good and faithful. Even when I am in troubling situations, you know how to make a way out of no way for me. Thank you! Help me learn to trust you more. Help my faith in you to deepen. Even when situations don’t feel good or look good, you are good and you are faithful. Show me your way out and help me not to lean on my own understanding. Be glorified in my life. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

No, You Need Peace

“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You” Isaiah 26:3, NKJV.

Read the Scripture above out loud and think on how it applies to you.

I’ll never forget a season in my life when every time I went to the altar for prayer the minister would tell me that I needed peace. I would go to them and say, “I need prayer for wisdom because I’m having to make important decisions.” They would look at me and say, “No, you need peace.” Then I would go up to the altar again the next Sunday-this time to a different person-asking for prayer for my marriage and family. Same response, “No, you need peace.” After this happened several times I became frustrated because I thought I already had peace. So I asked my husband, “Do I look peaceful to you?” He smiled and said, “No, you look like you always have a lot on your mind.” I didn’t have peace at all because my mind was on everything else but God.

Peace is more than a feeling, it’s a knowing that everything is going to be alright because God is in control. It’s a song on your heart and an attitude of praise because you know God won’t let you down. In every situation, you can trust in the Lord to make good on His promises to you. You can choose not to worry about how He is going to do it or when He will come through. You can choose to fix your mind on His promises instead of the problems because you know He loves you, He’s with you and He is in full control.

Prayer: Father God, I thank You for speaking to my heart. You are my faithful God and I love You! Help me to keep my mind stayed on You. Keep me in Your perfect peace. I can’t do anything in my own strength. You are the only One who can do it. I put my total trust in You right now and I ask that You be glorified in my life. In Jesus name, Amen.
