Peter tells us that God is not slow in keeping His promises but is incredibly patient (2 Peter 3:9) and His patience has a purpose: salvation. In the middle of a broken world when darkness seems so abundant it can be easy to become jaded or think God has forgotten us. Each day that passes countless lives are changed by the power of the Good News and all across the globe Jesus is saving lives like only He can.
Don’t give up. Keep running this race! Don’t faint and keep walking with the Lord each day in every moment. At the end of time all our greatest pain and suffering will be distant memories as the God of heaven wipes away every tear from our eyes (Revelation 21:4). Today let the light of Jesus shine brightly in our lives as we take the Gospel into a dark world knowing that Jesus alone can save, redeem and transform the most broken lives.
My prayer for you and I today is that the Lord would refresh us. May the God of heaven comfort us, strengthen us and refresh the certainty of the hope we have in His unfailing faithfulness.
