I’ve discovered that certainly one of my biggest battles in long periods of waiting is fighting fear and all its buddies like anxiety, fretfulness, and worry. A vocals in my own head asks, let's say this occurs? What if God does answer my prayers n’t? It's the gospel who has taught me that suffering energy and courage will be found in never myself however in Christ. I am empowered become courageous whenever:
- We meditate in the sovereign guideline and energy of Jesus and his numerous goodness in delivering a Savior to create me personally free of sin.
- I recall that my “light momentary affliction is get yourself ready for us an eternal fat of glory beyond all comparison” (2 Corinthians 4:17).
Jesus stated, “I won't ever make you or forsake you. ” Ever. He could be Immanuel, Jesus with us. That’s a promise that may maintain us as we wait for his triumphant return while we wait for answers to prayer, but even more!
7. See it as a chance to experience God’s goodness (Psalm 27:13; Lamentations 3:25).
When my focus is on my issues and just what God has or have not provided me personally, i will be at risk of grumbling, complaining, discontentment, bitterness, and selfishness.
