We Wait

We wait in hope for the Lord;
    he is our help and our shield. Psalm 33:20

As each day passes, the longing for Christ’s return gets stronger, or it should.

We see the chaos, and marvel that He hasn’t returned already to right the wrongs and set things straight. We see only a tiny portion of the evil and corruption in the world.

God sees it all.

  • He sees the graphic violence against children and women every moment of the day.
  • He sees the injustice.
  • He sees the billions who are hurting.
  • He sees the hungry and poor.

And he sees those who have inflicted pain upon those people.

It’s easy to forget God’s sovereignty over it all.

So we wait with the complete assurance that He will make it all right.

Until then, though, we do what we can with the talents and gifts we He’s given us. Sometimes that can mean righting wrongs and confronting evil when it’s staring us in the face. It’s a thankless and difficult job, but it’s worthwhile.
