If God wrote this letter to you, would you be a bit more patient while waiting for Him to answer your prayer?:
“I want you to cast all your cares and worries on me because I care for you. (James 5:7) Leave them with me…I will take care of those worries that you have, but be patient because those who hope in me will not be disappointed.” (Isaiah 49:23b)
I want you to know that since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides me, who acts on behalf of those who wait for me. (Isaiah 64:4)
Sometimes, when I want to strengthen you, I send a trial so that I can help you learn patience - and we should all accept our trial or time of testing when I send one because – at the end of that test, you will have learned patience. (Romans 5:3)
When I try or test your faith, it is to see if you really do trust me. It's for YOUR GOOD that I do this. My goal is to help you learn to be patient. The trying of your faith works toward your achieving patience James 1:3. When you wait upon me, you can be sure that everything that you leave in my hands must be left in my hands as an act of proof that you truly trust me. When you do this - when you finally learn to trust me 100%, I promise you that all things will come out perfectly.
It’s really all about trusting me. I want you to trust in me with all your heart and don’t lean on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge me…cast your burdens on me…and I will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6).
I can see around corners…you cannot. I know what lies ahead…you do not. Everything will work out just fine to all those who love me, who trust me…who reverence me because I have a purpose for each life who does fully trust me. (Romans 8:28.
