Waiting on God stretches our trust in Him, especially when we are urgently longing for His intervention or guidance in a situation.  From our earthly perspective and with our limited knowledge, it may seem as if He doesn’t care, but that is far from the truth.

God uses times of waiting to strengthen our trust in Him, and reminding ourselves of His character and abilities helps build confidence in our Father.  So as we wait, we must remember:
* The Lord has all-encompassing knowledge of every detail of our circumstances.
* He has complete understanding of the motives and intentions of everyone involved in our situation.
* God’s power is greater than all our efforts to solve our problems. No one else can prevent His plans.
* His eye is always on us during the wait, and He is our help and protection.
* His lovingkindness continually rests upon us.

Whenever overcome with a sense of urgency or uncertainty, we must remember who God is and what He has promised to do for us.  Although He may not work everything out as we desire, it will be according to His perfect wisdom and for our good —and in this we can rejoice.

Please open your bible to the following scripture:  Psalm 33:13-22
From heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth—-he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.  No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength.  A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save.  But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.  We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.  In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.  May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you.

Thoughts from Psalm 33:13-22
Because God is Creator, Lord, Savior, and Deliverer, he is worthy of our trust and praise.  Because he is faithful and his word is dependable, we can rejoice and give thanks and praise.  During today’s unusual circumstances we must remember that God is completely trustworthy.  Our hope is in God.  Key thought:Place our hope in God.
