Do you hate waiting for things? I know I do! I remember I just couldn’t wait to finish my schooling. I counted down the days until I graduated and couldn’t wait to start the next phase of my life.
You might not be looking forward to graduation, but there’s probably something in your life that you wish would happen faster. Maybe you prayed for something, and it’s just taking so long to come to pass in your life. That reminds me a lot of today’s Bible verse.
I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” – Genesis 28:15 (NIV)
God reminds us in this verse that He will not leave us until He’s done what He promised us. So if you’re waiting on a promise of God, know that it is coming. It doesn’t always come in the timeframe that we want, but it does always come. God knows where you are. He knows how to get the things you need to you. So don’t give up. Don’t lose heart.
God loves you, He has a plan and a future for you that’s good. Stay with Him, stay close to Him. Let Him lead, guide, and help you each step of the way.
We’d like to give a big thanks to Lucas Beron for creating the image for today’s devotion. If you like his designs, you can see more of his work by following him at @yosigonmd. He’s also written several devotions for us in the past: How to Live Fear-Free During Coronavirus and Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Psalm 4:8.
