Psalm 37:7 (NIV)
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him
Waiting patiently for him, we must be still and stand in the faith while waiting for God to bring justice and to vindicate us. Patience while undergoing trouble or suffering is possible through the Holy Spirit's help.
In this world there are times of heartache and pain that we all go through, we want to feel like someone is fighting for us. We want justice and the ones who hurt us to pay. But only God can serve justice and we have to stand back and be still while God protects us. In our human nature that can be very hard to swallow.
During those sufferings, the Holy Spirit will help us endure those heartaches, words that cut deep to the bone. Be ashore that God is with you in these times, He is fighting our fight.
I remember as a child in my sufferings hearing a small still voice (I am holding you). To a child that is all I needed at those darkness times. I didn't understand but waited quietly for I knew somehow that the pain, hurt and suffering would one day end. God has set me free. And I am no longer in that dark place. Amen.
