(“but wait on the Lord, and He shall save thee”)
– Understand this. We demonstrate our faith in God, not just in His ability to provide for us, but also in our patient belief in His justice! He said, “avenge not yourselves, vengeance is mine, I will repay”.
– Wait on God, He can handle it better than we can! (Selah)
– Have a God Conscious Day!
