"Here’s what I’ve learned through it all: Don’t give up; don’t be impatient; be entwined as one with the Lord. Be brave and courageous, and never lose hope. Yes, keep on waiting—for he will never disappoint you!"
Psalm 27:14 TPT
There isn't a place so far away that we can go, so dark that the Lord isn't there. He is passionate about us, and He is jealous over us to be close. The Lord meets us in that place, and pulls us close. He is our very foundation, our rock, our fortress and our strength.
Walking through serious health problems as a child into adulthood, I clung to the Lord just like this verse says,
"Be brave and courageous, and never lose hope. Yes, keep on waiting—for he will never disappoint you!" I can honestly say that after I walked through that journey, it didn't seriously occur to me that there might be seasons just as hard or sometimes harder that I might walk through. There have been years where the it felt like the trials just kept coming, but the Lord would remind me of who He is, and who I am in Him. We all have a choice whether to believe the truth of who God says we are and keep our eyes on Him, or get lost and feel far away from Him. He's already stated that He won't leave us.
"Don’t give up;
don’t be impatient;
be entwined as one with the Lord.
Be brave and courageous, and never lose hope."
The Lord is ever patient with us, and never gives up on us. I don't have to have all the answers, and what a relief to that! He already has them, and He has filled me with all that I need, which is Himself!
This key - be entwined with the Lord. According to the Collins dictionary online it states that, "If two things entwine or are entwined, they closely resemble or are linked to each other, and they are difficult to separate or identify."
That type of closeness with the Lord leaves no room for doubt and is very solidly built together. It is faith - trust.
If you are believing the Lord and standing on His promises, and all that He has spoken and shown you, believe Him. He keeps all of His word, and He won't let one fall. Praise Him, He's so worthy, and so faithful! Remember,
"Yes, keep on waiting—for he will never disappoint you!"
