"Remember the word unto Thy servant, upon which Thou hast caused me to hope. ..

"No word of God shall fall to the ground; for he is faithful that has promised, and God's faithfulness is the stay and support of his people's faith. ..... God is always punctual to his time; though his promised mercies come not at the time we set, they will certainly come at the time he sets, and that is the best time." ~MH

"God bestows mercies upon his people to encourage their joy in his work and service; and, whatever is the matter of our joy, God must be acknowledged as the author of it. When mercies have been long deferred they are the more welcome when they come. It adds to the comfort of any mercy to have our friends rejoice with us in it. Others would rejoice in this instance of God's power and goodness, and be encouraged to trust in him. See Psalm 119:74." ~MH

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
