One of Danny’s cousins has had a problem with her foot for some time. An old injury is now causing huge problems. She worked on it until this summer. She finally got in to see a specialist and his response to the old injury was twofold. She has to stay off that foot at all costs. She also will be fitted with a special support device to help her not injure the foot anymore and to give her support when she does need to walk on it. The biggest problem is that the support device will take upwards of two months to be made. It’s a waiting period that is hard but there’s an outcome at the end that will help her tremendously and give her relief. Fortunately she trusts the Lord through it all.
Oh beloved, God is working things out for you. The wait has been long and the pain is excruciating. You’re tired and worn to a frazzle. You’ve prayed and prayed. You’ve talked to God and asked Him to hurry. Relief is nowhere in sight as far as you can see. But precious believer, you can’t see what God sees and you can’t always know what He is doing. But you can be assured that while you are waiting the heavenlies are opened up and God is working on your behalf.
Each of us are in the process of healing, restoration, revival or renewal. Sometimes God works instantly, sometimes He teaches us in a process. We can rest in these truths while we are waiting. He never ignores our pain, nor does He look at our problems and walk away. He has a support for each of us even while He is finishing the work. His support is heavenly, His care is divine and His outcomes for us are right on time. We don’t know how close it is to God handing us the answer. We can’t afford to give up now.
He says it’s time to stop walking in your own strength. The injury will only be compounded as you try to work things out and fix problems on your own. Lay aside your fleshly desires to hurry and worry through. It’s time to rest in His promises, rest on His faithfulness and rest in the love He has lavishly poured out on you.
God loves you and He’s for you. The outcome is in His hands and you can trust Him. His plans are far more lavish than you can imagine and unprecedented in nature. Praise Him in the process and rejoice in the truth as you live in the Light of His unparalleled divine loving care.

Matthew 6:30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, He will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
