The verse below is quite refreshing for me. The beautiful attributes of God stand out and provide an enormous amount of reassurance and comfort.
Isaiah 30:18 New International Version (NIV)
Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;
therefore he will rise up to show you compassion.
For the Lord is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him!
We serve a God who is gracious. He provides GRACE even when we are undeserving. Here on earth we often pick and choose who to extend Grace too. The Lord extends his grace to ALL, no matter our sins. To give his son’s life for each and every one of us shows an abundant amount of Grace.
We serve a God who is compassionate. As Jesus walked the streets he cared for the lost, the hurting, the ill. He exercises compassion to each of us no matter how big or small the hurt is.
We also serve a God of Justice. We are covered in all situations, he will see to it that wrongs are made right. He will see to it that we are blessed abundantly because we choose to wait on him and his goodness rather than trying to solve all things alone.
Whatever you are going through, I encourage you to wait. Wait on the God who wants to bless you, be gracious and compassionate to you and provide justice in your situations.
