Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act.
—Psalm 37:7 (NLT)
Quiet, child. I know your situation before you speak one word to me. I haven’t led you into something that won’t come to pass. Your circumstance may seem like a wasteland right now, but let me assure you it isn’t. This promise is just as real as when I first declared it. Don’t get frustrated by what you don’t see happening. Trust me. I’m working. Just because you don’t see it or feel it doesn’t mean I won’t act when my time is right.
Be still in my presence. Rest in me. Don’t try to move me or take control. Let go. Quit trying to fix what I’m doing. It hinders. Just because you can’t experience what I’m doing right at this moment doesn’t mean it isn’t real. My promise is very real. Each step you can’t see is also very real. Wait patiently for my timing. Don’t run ahead of what I alone accomplish.
Listen to my heart. Not your own. I guide you with my counsel and lead you. Now take delight in my life for yours. I’m giving you your heart’s desire. You will see through my eyes when you let go and believe. Dwell in me. Commit your thoughts to me. Trust me. I remain the strength of your heart. I am yours—forever. And that is your greatest promise.
