“He will listen to the prayers of the destitute. He will not reject their pleas.”
(Psalm 102:17, NLT)
Endurance in trials comes not from immediate alleviation of your circumstances but the expectation that you will see the character of the One who holds you fast; that you will see His mercy and favor, His glory – beheld by all the nations of the earth; that you will witness those things in your own life as you entrust your life to His care.
Whether you feel destitute – of inspiration, willpower, love, physical strength, holiness – He hears you. He doesn’t despise you in your weakness but draws near to you, for nothing can separate you from His love. Keep holding on – He will give you strength in the prayer-filled wait for restoration.
Prayer: Father, when I feel I have little to offer, thank You that You always hear my prayer!
