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! – Isaiah 30:18 NIV
We sometimes have a hard time accepting God’s grace. We try to do it all on our own, and when we fail and become exhausted, the Lord gently reminds us that He was there all along offering us His hand to help. He can make things easier for us. We don’t have to strive all the time.
It is a lesson in surrender. Sometimes He simply asks us to be still–to meditate on Him. His works are glorious and we can appreciate Him better when we stop to breathe.
Our God is a God of justice. We can appreciate what He has made right in our lives. Amen.
