It is a staple. It is the RULE if you will. "Wait on the lord." Your steps are ordered. The Lord is working behind the scenes, just wait and have faith. For so many, and this includes myself this hard to do. We find ourselves backed up against the wall on many occasion. It is hard not to pick up the burden we left for the Lord to handle. It takes will power. It takes prayer. It takes faith. And lastly it takes God's understanding and forgiveness to see us through. We can thank the Lord for this. We can thank Jesus for this. If it weren't for his death and rising we would not have a leg to stand on. So ask God to forgive you for your sins always. Ask God to remember his promises always. Be mindful of the enemy and his sneaky ways. The enemy loves it when you are stressed. He can fit right in the mix then. Pray him away. Give it to God.
1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
