“Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for Him: do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked ways” – Psalm 37:7
” You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God. your God has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.” Hebrews 1:9
God is faithful and just; he will reward your wait and righteousness. In your life, you may feel that the righteous and ungodly people people are getting high ahead of you in every aspect of life; You may feel that despite your prayers and service to God, evil forces and forces of darkness are still exercising their authority over you. You may feel that your mates and fellows who are living out of the will and direction of God are making great fortune and doing better than you. And you might still be feeling that evil and your enemies will triumph.
Quit worrying. Stop living in your feelings and start to live on His word and promises concerning you. God is fully aware of what you are going through, and it is not like He is stuck up somewhere, unable to reach you or He is unjust to forget your labour, love and dedication. (See Hebrews 6: 10). Neither is He unfaithful to fulfill His promises to you. But He is actually with you in the rough road, pain, struggles, troubles etc. taking you to your glorious destination. God didn’t have to make Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego disappear into thin air and not go into the blazing furnace. He just had to walk with them in the blazing furnace. (See Daniel 3). He also didn’t have to make Daniel disappear, though He could have done it if He wanted, He just had to stay with Daniel in the lions den. (See Daniel 6). So He is with you in whatever you are going through.
Continue to live for God; doing His will and living righteous. And as you wait in patience, God will show up in His time and you would never want it at any time than that moment. “But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31. Your wait shall be worth it. People will know that, God rewards loyalty and righteousness. “Do not fret because of evil men or be envious of those who do wrong” – Psalm 37 :1. “For the righteous will be glad when they are avenged, when they bath their feet in the blood of the wicked. “then men will say, “surely , the righteous still are wicked; surely there is God who judges the earth,” Psalm 58:10 & 11.
As you continue to do His will, declare His promises to be true in your life and believe in Him. Be confident that He will guide and protect you and bring you to an expected end. Trust Him. He’s got a plan. AMEN!
