Resting, Knowing, Waiting

‘Trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
In all Your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path.” Proverbs 3:5-6

It was something Barry felt he had to do.

The time had come for him to take a stand against the board’s wrongful business decisions.
So he resigned from his job.  That was months ago.  And his wife, Olivia, was growing impatient.
She prayed and asked others to pray.  But nothing happened.  The waiting became harder.

One morning Olivia read Isaiah 49, which says,
Then you will know that I am the LORD, for they shall not be ashamed who wait for Me.”

God showed her through His Word that peace was in resting, knowing, and depending upon the LORD and in God’s perfect timing.

Waiting can be hard and Olivia doesn’t know when Barry will be working…
But she does know she’ll be able to tell about God’s faithfulness because she waited on Him.

Yes, dear one, walk by faith, not by sight.
