Hoping in God, We Will Never Be Put To Shame

"Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause." (Psalm 25:3)

When we wait on the Lord, we must know and believe that He is doing nothing but good, and preparig nothing but the best for us.

Consider the first mention of "wait" or "qavah" in the Old Testament:

"And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so." (Genesis 1:9)

The last mention occurs in the prophet Micah:

"And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the LORD, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men." (Micah 5:7)

Consider also what Isaiah declares:

"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." (Isaiah 40:31)

There is no shame, but great strength for us who wait on Him.

We trust in Him to come through for us, and we know that if there is a delay, He has a reason for doing so

And remember, no matter how long a matter may take to be resolved, don't ever think that God is angry with you!

"For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee." (Isaiah 54:9)

But also:

"Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more." (Isaiah 54:4)

There is no fear of shame, and there is no shame in hoping in God to come through for you!
