Do you have the faith?

It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.
(Lamentations 3:26 (NKJV))

Everyone has something that they hope for. Everyone has something that they impatiently wait and wish would happen. It is a righteous man who waits upon the Lord in the faith that what they hope for will happen.

Faith has been described as a belief in things that cannot be seen. As believers, we should all have the faith that calls us to hope. Perhaps we should redefine the word faith, for as believers, we have seen with our hearts and our spirits what we know to be true.

Perhaps faith should be redefined as a knowledge of the truth that can only be seen through the aid of the Holy Spirit. When we have the Holy Spirit, we have an insight into the Will of God. Perhaps it is this insight that makes it possible for us to hope and wait quietly when all around us is chaos.

Do you have the faith to hope and wait quietly on the Lord?
