“My God will hear me.” – Micah 7:7
WILL. Confident expectation. How He WILL respond, I do not know. My waiting is a submission to His ways. But it is a confident waiting, a confident submission, that He WILL hear and He WILL respond. And for that reason alone I can wait in hope, in joy, in confidence.
Will His answer be a “yes” to the thing I long for and bring before Him day after day?
I do not know.
But the joy is in knowing that whatever He chooses, however He responds, it is His goodness. We must be absolutely convinced of His goodness before we can wait on Him, for Him with confident expectation. For if His answer is “no” we may find ourselves bitterly disappointed because we think Him not good or kind, or worse.. that He does not hear, is not near. He is always near to the heart that cries out for Him. Will we trust that whatever His response our joy is in His goodness? His faithful, unchanging love for us in found in response to our requests… in whatever form that response takes.
“But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me.” – Micah 7:7
