What do you do when you hear bees in the bathroom breather pipe? Your dishwasher breaks and the new one won’t drain and your dentist sends you to a more expensive expert?
Well, I did all I know to do. I prayed, shared with a friend and prayed some more. Then I called the ‘experts’ in such matters and then I waited…oops…and saved up my pennies for the bill.
What do you do when…?
Think of Joseph, who was assaulted by his eleven brothers, sold into slavery, accused of rape, and thrown into prison unjustly. He continued to believe God and trusted him no matter what. Meanwhile twenty-one years passed before things turned around for Joseph, yet Joseph continued to trust and believe God.
What will you do when…?
Understand that …
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. (2 Peter 3:9)
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, and be constant in prayer. (Romans 12:12)
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. (Psalm 27:14)
