Memory Verse: Lamentations 3:24-26: Day 3
“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. –Lamentations 3:24-26
There are so many time we pray and seem to get no answer. We dwell in a society that demands instant results for everything. We also live with our own hearts that breed forth constant and near immediate impatience. But even Daniel in chapter 10 had to wait 21 days for the Lord to answer his prayer. How much longer should you and I be willing to wait.
We can infer from our memory verse this week that God likes when we wait patiently for him. It says that he is good to those who wait for him. While Daniel waited he ate no delicacies, nor any meat or wine. How often have you fasted for an extended period of time while you waited upon the Lord? He is good to those who wait for him. Let your soul echo this truth in the sanctuary of your mind.
