I Wonder

I Wonder, how Noah must have felt, when God said "build an ark". No one else was there to support him. Instead people gathered to make fun of him. How did he feel when his faith was tested, in the building of a boat with no rain or cloud in sight?

I wonder, how Abraham must have felt, when God said"you will be a father of many nations". No one else was there to support him. How did he feel, when he was beyond the age to even have strength to have a child? How did he feel, to wait and see what and how God would work?

I wonder,how Jacob must have felt, and when God said "I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you". Did he have faith enough to trust what God promised, or would he trust his ability to deceive? How did he feel when he had to trust God instead of himself and his plans?

I wonder how Joseph must have felt, when God showed him a dream, of becoming the head of a country, soon he found himself in a prison, in slavery, in a well, sold, in another cell...? While he waited for the dream, how did he feel?

I wonder, how Hannah must have felt, when after her prayers, Eli said to her "May God grant your request...yet she would have to wait and see how the answer comes? How did she feel when she had to wait for her deliverance from scorn and shame?

I wonder.....but oh not really....God promised me too, and I am waiting...and I will wait till I see the fulfilment of His promises...but then...now I know how they felt when they waited...now I know.
But I also know that, "they that wait upon the Lord, shall renew their strength, they shall walk and not be weary, they shall run and not faint" Isaiah 40:31
But I also know that "All who put their trust in the Lord will never be put to shame"Romans 9:33
But I also know that " With man it may be impossible, but with God all things are possible" Matthew 19:26
But I also know that "He who has called me is Faithful to do what He has promised" (1 Corinthians 1:9)
And I also know that "Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day."(2 Timothy 1:12)

Our faith is tested everyday. It is great sometimes to see the bible characters handled there troubles of faith. Sometimes looking at them we can learn how to build our faith up and to handle our situations. God Bless

You are certainly looking in the right place for strength while waiting for this promise to come about.

Romans 10:17 "Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ."

Good post.

I love that verse from Timothy. He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him unto that day!
