Blessed are all who wait for Him

Isaiah 30:15-22 (New International Version)

15 This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says:
"In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength,
but you would have none of it.

16 You said, 'No, we will flee on horses.'
Therefore you will flee!
You said, 'We will ride off on swift horses.'
Therefore your pursuers will be swift!

17 A thousand will flee
at the threat of one;
at the threat of five
you will all flee away,
till you are left
like a flagstaff on a mountaintop,
like a banner on a hill."

18 Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you;
he rises to show you compassion.
For the LORD is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him!

...Being still. ...Waiting
( ...with Tom Petty gently singing in the background "The WAITING is the hardest part. Yeah, the WAITING is the hardest part...") emoticon

Praying for you a blessed day! emoticon emoticon

    Thank you for your message. God waits patiently and wants us always to come to him, "Ask and you shall receive, Seek and ye shall find". Remember the blessings will come, and always when the time is right.

    God always wants us to come to Him. We often wait for Him to come to us...but he is always there waiting with open heart! God bless your day.
