Sometimes difficulties can come in unrelenting waves. Every day they crash upon our thoughts like waves on a beach. And despite all our gallant efforts to seek God’s peace in these storms, peace evades us. We stand on the beach, alone and at a loss as to what to do. But when we have searched God’s word for direction, and no specific direction is revealed, what then?
Then we do the only thing left to do:
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:13 KJV
And as we stand, what then?
Exodus 14:14, “The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.”
Yes, stand, be silent and wait
It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. Lamentations 3:26 ES
The hardest part will likely be to wait (it may be awhile). Although, for some it may be to keep silent! Either way, we must submit to God’s timing. Because it is in His timing that:
… all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
