Peace in the Waiting

2 Peter 3:14 (TPT) So, my beloved friends, with all that you have to look forward to, may you be eager to be found living pure lives when you come into his presence, without blemish and filled with peace.

Beloved, with so much to look forward to, the temptation is great to be over eager as you wait for the coming promises. And yet, you know that My timing is perfect. And I would have you know peace – peace in the waiting. 

Resist the urge to think something is wrong if I haven’t brought my promises to pass and simply trust Me. Trust My timing. Trust I know best, and rest in Me. Refuse to lose the joy of the journey as you eagerly anticipate the next destination point. Instead, embrace each moment with joy as you know peace. 

I AM YHVH Shalom

2 Peter 2:9 (NLT) So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment.

Beloved, no circumstance is so complex that I’m unable to extract you from it. There are times I may walk you through for your character’s sake, but I AM always able. So trust Me and never hesitate to ask Me for help for I AM a very present help in times of trouble.

Take My hand and walk in peace – regardless of circumstance. I AM YHVH Shalom, the Lord your Peace, and I will never leave you or forsake you. My joy is your strength and it is always there for the taking because it is found in My presence and I will always receive you. No trouble is too great. No shame too heavy. Nothing will keep Me from My children nor lessen My love for them – and that means you.

Unimpeachable Promises

2 Peter 3:9 (GW) The Lord isn’t slow to do what he promised, as some people think. Rather, he is patient for your sake. He doesn’t want to destroy anyone but wants all people to have an opportunity to turn to him and change the way they think and act.

Beloved, I do not promise lightly, nor do I neglect My word once given. My promises are ALWAYS delivered on. My timing of that fulfillment is what man has struggled with since the beginning of time, and yet time and again I have demonstrated My faithfulness, that I AM completely trustworthy. Do not be tempted into a place of doubt, for in your heart of hearts you know that I AM true. My word is steadfast and sure. I AM unchanging; the same yesterday, today, and forever. I AM unimpeachable.

So beloved, wait patiently for all I have promised, knowing it WILL come to pass, knowing My timing is perfect. Know that if I seem to tarry, there is a good purpose in doing so. I love My children and am always acting on their (your) behalf as a Father who adores His children and protect them even as He blesses and rewards them. Trust Me.
