Lord, may my faith be like that of the royal official. He asked for You to come and heal his child who was close to death. You simply told him “Go, your son will live.” And he took You at Your word and left.
Even before he saw it with his own eyes, the circumstances proved that You did what You said You would do. They even revealed that it happened exactly when You spoke!
Father, help me trust in You and what You tell me, even when I can’t see the results immediately. When it is not in front of my eyes and the doubt of the world pushes in, don’t let my faith waver. When it doesn’t seem to be happening quick enough let me be patient and trust that Your timing is perfect.
We are having to wait on so many things right now. In this pandemic, we are praying for healing and good health and jobs, and normalcy to return. And we cannot see what life will look like in another week or month.
Reminds me of an old country hymn. Part of the lyrics say:
“Take Him at His word when it’s not lookin’ good,
believe that He’ll do what He said that He would…’”
I believe. Amen
