The reference of John Hagee Daily Devotion for 2nd December 2022 is ”Psalm 27:14”
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE Reference: Psalm 27:14
Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the LORD!
We can expect the unexpected when we have put our faith in the Lord. But do not expect His reply on our timetable!
We often bring our petitions to the Lord and expect Him to answer by the close of business today. We place time restrictions on God and grow impatient with Him when He does not respond to our demands.
As we expect the unexpected, we must remember that His thoughts and ways are much higher than ours – beyond our understanding and explanation. Abraham waited 25 years for the son that God promised him. Sarah was 90 years old when she gave birth to Isaac – that was unexpected!
Moses was 80 years old when God sent him back to Egypt to lead the children of Israel out of slavery. He considered himself a failure, but God had the unexpected in mind!
When we trust God’s timing, He will part the waters, move the mountains, and make a way through the wilderness of impossibility. In the fullness of His time – when we are led by His Word and His Spirit – He will orchestrate every detail for the right-on-time arrival of our blessing.
Our responsibility is to trust His timing and wisdom in the waiting. He will keep us in perfect peace when we focus on Him. In His good time, we can expect the unexpected!
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. God’s delay is not His denial! He will steady and strengthen you while you wait for His reply.
