Devotional for 31 March 2017 - Hope
5 Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
my salvation and my God.
Dear Beloved at Grace,
Blessings to you in our Saviour Jesus Christ! Marie and I are trying to wait patiently for the day when we can board our flights to Australia to be with you and to begin our journey together in the Lord. Why is it when we think we have this “patience thing” down, the Lord seems to give us additional opportunities to grow in this department?
Waiting involves the future - the unfolding of the Lord’s providential design, the accomplishment of His plans and purposes which He has worked out before the foundation of the world. And what are those plans and purposes? We may know those things which He has chosen to reveal to us: 29 “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.
