HOW LONG, O LORD?
James 5:7-9 ” Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near. Don’t grumble against each other, brothers, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door!”
The Scene: A farmer waiting for God’s blessing of rain and sunshine, so that his Springtime plantings will grow into mature plants that he will harvest, at just the right time.
The Lord is with His children at all times. He knows their needs. We have but to praise Him, give Him the glory due His name and thank Him for all He does for us. When we pray He will respond; God loves us unconditionally.
Psalm 79: 5-6 “How long, O Lord? Will you be angry forever? How long will your jealousy burn like fire? Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you, on the kingdoms that do not call on your name; “
Psalm 79:9 “Help us, O God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name’s sake.”
We can call on Jesus’ name anytime, as followers of Jesus the Christ, the Son of Father God.
