“‘The days are coming,’ declares the LORD, ‘when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign wisely and do what is just and right in the land. In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will be called: The LORD Our Righteous Saviour.” Jeremiah 23:5-6 NIV
Everything prophesied about Jesus, coming to earth to be our Saviour, came to pass although the wait seemed long! This gives us hope that what is promised about His future return will also come to pass! No matter how long we wait, the Bible is clear that God is not slow in keeping His promises as some understand slowness to be. So Lord, please give me the strength and the patience to endure in the meantime, as I look to You, and as I fix my thoughts on eternity. Amen 🙏🏼
And our eyes at last shall see Him, through His own redeeming love;
For that child so dear and gentle, is our Lord in heaven above,
And He leads His children on,
To the place where He is gone.
(Once in Royal David’s city)
