WAITING CONFIDENTLY FOR THE LORD
(17 August 2018)
"As for me; I look to the Lord for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me"
The first verses of Micah 7 could just as well have been written about our day.
People lie and cheat, murder and scheme.
Officials and judges, and many others, demand bribes.
And those with influence make sure they get what they want.
But even in these times, we can say what Micah said, "I look to the Lord for help and confidently wait for Him to save me."
God has the answers. He has the solution to every problem we face.
We can have confidence in His wisdom, ability, and promises.
We can have confidence in Him, for He does not lie or change His mind.
When He makes a promise, He never fails to act but carries it through.
We can call on Him, knowing He hears us and will come to our aid.
Regardless of the circumstances around us, or how degraded the world and its people become, we can always count on and trust in God.
In Him, we have hope.
In Him, we have security.
In Him, we find rest, provision and protection.
He is the Source of everything we will ever need.
We can come to Him with boldness and confidence, knowing He will never let us down but will always act on our behalf and in our best interest.
We can wait confidently for Him to save us.
