There will come times when we feel like we are out-of-sight/out-of-mind with God because hard situations only seem to grow worse. But sometimes those are the very places where an amazing, in-depth work is being worked out in us to train us, to temper us, to mature and grow us... to get our spirit, our resolve, our roots, our character solid and founded in Him alone, so that when He brings to the surface all He has planned for us (hello, Eph 3:20!), we'll be steady, fully mature, wise, humble, and able to sustain a flourishing harvest in our lives.
He's never lost sight of where you are. He is a Promise Keeper. And He will fight for you. He is guiding your steps along toward an appointed time, season, and place that WILL produce a beautiful harvest out of the seeds of faithfulness you have sown.
Don't get weary now. Don't give up doing right. When others are doing wrong, when people are playing petty, unfair, or downright mean, hold your peace. Don't get drawn down to fight petty at that level, but draw your eyes back toward Him. Don't give up your hope, your faith, your trust, your resolve, your diligence, your obedience... trust HIM. Speak by faith. Stay the course, steady in Him. Take a deep breath. Keep at it, keep your heart right in the tough times, and don't quit.
If you but only knew what He has for you, it would blow you away. He will take care of you. It's only a matter of time, friend. Harvest will come, a good one. He takes care of His own. It's gonna be so worth it. Always is with Him. He's so faithful.
My dear, dear friends! I love you so much. I do want the very best for you. You make me feel such joy, fill me with such pride. Don’t waver. Stay on track, steady in God. Phil 4:1, Message
