Beloved, do you feel frustrated with waiting on God today? If so, I heard the Lord say:
“It won't be long now until you see Me in all My glory.
I know you feel frustrated and helpless, but I need you to remember that I am neither frustrated nor helpless. I know you feel out of control, but I am very much in control.
I still need you to pray and watch and work and wait, but I want you to build up your patience. I need you to think of the concept of patience differently than you have been, however.
Patience means abiding under.
When I ask you to be patient, I am asking you to keep looking at Me. I am asking you to keep waiting for the outcome I have promised. I am asking you to abide under My shadow and to persevere in faith, even when you don't get everything I promised right away.
I see your frustration with your lack of progress. Indeed, you feel useless, cut off, and lonely. You feel like the things that make you YOU are lost, and you don't know if they will ever be found.
But, my darling child, I am with you always.
I am with you right now, to comfort you. I was with you yesterday when you poured out your frustration. I know you have almost stopped believing for anything good for yourself; daily life has been so difficult for so long that you have lost the will to try in many cases.
But I am still with you:
- I am with you to comfort you in your frustration, your anger, and your hurt.
- I am your Way when you feel trapped.
- I am your Plan, when it seems like nothing is going your way.
All things become brand new when I am in them, so I want you to ask Me to help you in this place of frustration right now.
Ask Me to help you, even though you don't have words.
Pray in the Spirit if you are able to, but ask Me to help you nonetheless. Even if all you muster up is a heartfelt “Help, Abba,” then do that.
I know you feel trapped and useless … and I am with you to comfort you.
I know you feel lonely and alone … and I am with you to comfort you.
I know you feel like you aren't making any progress; like everything you have tried has led only to a dead end … but I am with you to comfort you.
In this season, I want to be enough.
I know how frustrated you are through circumstances not of your own making. However, in this season, I need you to let Me be enough. Even if you only make it through one more day, look backward upon each day and see Me in it–and know that I am, and was, enough for you in that day.
Your frustration is understandable, but I am working where you can't see.
In patience you will possess your soul. By being patient with Me, you will ultimately conquer. I am coming quickly, even though My “quick” feels like your “slow.”
Nevertheless, be patient with Me and I will come. Keep your lamps trimmed and your wicks burning. Carry plenty of oil; do not be taken unawares at My coming into your situation. Watch and be ready, for I am on My way.
