Frustration has been on the rise because we have dealt with so many challenges this year. Many of us have been praying and anxiously awaiting answers from the Lord about what is next. Tempers are flaring and many are contemplating giving up and letting go of their promises from the Lord. I beseech you today my brothers and sisters to hold on just a little while longer.

The Lord is at work in the midst of your situation. He is moving on your behalf. Oftentimes we tempt the hand of God by our temper tantrums, pity parties, and issuing ultimatums. Whenever challenges arise, we must make it a point to remain in agreement with the Lord’s will.

Today’s Scripture reference stood out to me as I sought the Lord recently concerning some pressing issues. It immediately spoke hope and peace to my heart. I want to do the same for you. The Lord says there is a special time when your answers will be made known. He does everything according to his perfect plan and his purpose for us. We simply must trust his heart of compassion towards us.

My prayer for you today is that you will no longer look at what is not happening, but focus on what the Lord has already spoken. It is vital to hang on to every word that the Lord speaks in this season. He always guides us with his eyes upon us.

Father, it is not always easy to trust you when we cannot see our way. Circumstances get the best of us and overshadow our faith more often than not. Help us to trust you even when we cannot understand what is going. In Jesus’ name, amen.
