Today’s devotion is based on Lamentations 3:25,26: “The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.”
It is good to wait quietly. I may become impatient or distressed, but then I can remember how good the Lord is to those whose hope is in Jesus, and I can take a deep breath. No matter how bad the situation gets, God’s got it, and like a child safely in the arms of a parent, I can rest easy.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, help me to recognize your goodness, Lord, for you are my salvation and my strength. All praise and honor are yours. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
