Hope Deferred And Heart Sick

by Hazel Straub

We often grow discouraged and disheartened, when we do not see what God has promised, appear within our timeframe. Hope deferred makes our heart become sick, but a desire fulfilled is the tree of life. (Proverbs 13:12)

Shortsightedness mars our viewpoint because God’s ways are higher than ours. Time gives us greater capacity to handle the promise without our destruction. Additionally, he looks, at the fullness of time, with a much different perspective. Know that his timing is perfect. He calls us to trust him, on our life journey and rest in him. Remember, on cloudy and stormy days, even though we do not see the sun, it is still shining behind the clouds. The wind may blow the clouds away and then we see what was always there. God is faithful and is here for us, despite how we might feel!

Numbers 23:19
“God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?”
