Waiting sucks especially when life doesn’t look the way you imagined it would. You become irritable; your faith wavers; and the seed of doubt blossoms into a beautiful rose–so beautiful that you take your eyes off of the promise and are captivated by the doubt. It becomes easier to focus on doubt when the unfulfilled promise is visibly present and the promise itself seems to be nothing more than a mirage.
To focus on your lack and pain may seem mere appealing because it is present, however, faith requires that you set your eyes on what’s ahead–God’s promise to you. The flower of doubt/lack/pain will soon wither away but God’s Word doesn’t abide by the rules of nature–His Word will not wither away. His promise to you will be fulfilled if you trust Him and wait on Him.
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.”
Hebrews 10:23 ESV
