Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! (Isaiah 30:18)

Have you been suffering for a long time regarding a particular problem in your life? This

verse gives us hope that our God, who is a God of justice, blesses those who wait patiently

for him. Waiting is seldom easy, but it certainly does bring results. The longer the wait, the

more we tend to lose our patience. We grumble, we fight and we do silly things because

the frustration is intense.

The Bible says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door

will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him

who knocks, the door will be opened. (Matthew 7:7,

The time factor is not mentioned here and that often frustrates believers. Of course the

promise is valid now as it was when it was said originally. But “when dear Lord?” ask

some.

And the answer is “In God’s perfect time.” The Bible says, “We count those blessed who

endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord's

dealings that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. (James 5:11)

Job was blessed with a double portion and much more was restored than what he had lost.

We read in the last chapter of the book of Job;

The LORD blessed the latter part of Job's life more than the first. He had fourteen

thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys.

And he also had seven sons and three daughters. The first daughter he named Jemimah,

the second Keziah and the third Keren-Happuch. Nowhere in all the land were there

found women as beautiful as Job's daughters, and their father granted them an

inheritance along with their brothers. After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years; he

saw his children and their children to the fourth generation. And so he died, old and full

of years. (Job 42:12-17)
