“For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God” (Romans 8:24-27).
Today’s Morsel: What is the number one thing you are hoping for today? Do you have the patience to wait for it? Solomon said, “Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life” (Proverbs 13:12). When that which we are hoping for doesn’t come as soon as we expect it, if it is delayed any length of time, our minds may become uneasy, and our hearts may sink and fail, and we become discouraged and ready to quit waiting for it. We may give up all hope of enjoying the desired blessing when it is delivered to us. But on the other hand, if we wait for it with joy and excitement, when it comes it will be a tree of life, just like Jesus is and offer us joy unspeakable and full of glory.
Sing: I lean on You Lord, I lean on You Lord, for the things that I need, I lean on You; When I don’t know just what to do, I’ve got the faith You’re going to see me through, You supply my every need and I lean on You.
Though For Today: Wait, I say, on the Lord!
