Promises to remember during a time of waiting...

Trust says, "Lord, I believe that what you want for me is the best-what you want for me is joy.  Lord, I'll take it, and I'll take it your way."
Elisabeth Elliot (heard here)

Psalm 37:4
Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.(NKJV)

Psalm 84:11
For the LORD God is our light and protector. He gives us grace and glory. No good thing will the LORD withhold from those who do what is right.

Isaiah 58:10,11
10If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul, 
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness, 
And your darkness shall be as the noonday. 
11The LORD will guide you continually, 
And satisfy your soul in drought, 
And strengthen your bones; 
You shall be like a watered garden, 
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (NKJV)

*Just wanted to point out that these are not blanket statement promises-there are action steps involved.  We must be seeking Him, obeying Him, actively loving Him. :)
