Waiting on God’s rescue can feel like being in a boat that has many holes—taking in water very quickly, causing us to become desperate and impatient.
When the Israelites got near the land of Canaan, Moses sent scouts, 12 of them, to scout out the land. But, when they returned, they came back faithless because the people of that land were giants. They forgot what the Lord did to the Egyptians on their behalf. Ten out of twelve scouts were faithless and brought a bad report, discouraging the rest in the camp.
If we are walking according to God’s Word, we shouldn’t be afraid because the Lord is walking with us. This life at times will feel scary for some, but with Christ by our side, nothing can harm us unless God allows it for testing and strengthening our faith (James 1:2-4).
We cannot walk with our own wisdom and understanding apart from God’s, thinking we know best for our spiritual lives. The Lord knows all things and sees all things from beginning to end.
The phrase “One who walks” refers to one’s commitment on living his/her life according to God’s standard. The word “righteously” means to live or to make it your goal to imitate the life of Jesus Christ as told in the New Testament. Even what comes out of our mouths must be sprinkled with love and grace which is [kindness].
How happy and fortunate is the one who depends completely on the LORD. Such a one will not be moved or destroyed, but will flourish and thrive.
If you are losing hope, seek the Lord Jesus Christ who will strengthen you to endure until you come out of your tribulation.
