Verses to remind us that God is in control and knows what he is doing even in the midst of our current national situation:
Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth take their stand and the rules gather together
against the Lord and against his Anointed One.
"Let us break their chains," they say, "and throw off their fetters."
The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.
Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
"I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill."
Psalm 2: 1-6
The secret things belong to the Lord our God,
but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever,
that we may follow all the words of this law.
A verse for when we are uncertain about the future:
This is what the sovereign Lord says: "I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, 'Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
We are secure, not because we hold tightly to Jesus,
but because He holds tightly to us.
Dr. R.C. Sproul
Western culture is an instant culture, but the hope of heaven calls us to a different worldview. In God's plan, waiting is not an interruption or obstruction of the plan; waiting is part of the plan. As we are waiting for the eternity that is the promise of God's grace, we are not just passing the time: waiting is about becoming. Every moment of waiting is a divine tool for personal restoration and preparation.
