“It is good to wait quietly for salvation from the LORD.” (Lamentations 3:26, NLT)
God’s salvation takes many forms.
And it comes.
In the meantime, we learn.
To sit quietly.
Waiting for the Lord to save us.
“Let them sit alone in silence beneath the LORD’s demands.” (Lamentations 3:28, NLT)
Not commiserating with others.
Beneath God’s demands.
Let them turn the other cheek to those who strike them and accept the insults of their enemies. (Lamentations 3:30, NLT)
Not fighting back.
Not striking out.
Such difficult demands…
…not fighting back…
…not lashing out…
Just waiting for God’s salvation and trusting…
“…no one is abandoned by the LORD forever.
Though he brings grief, he also shows compassion because of the greatness of his unfailing love.
For he does not enjoy hurting people or causing them sorrow.” (Lamentations 3:31 – 32, NLT)
