Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12
I used to identify with that verse and think my hope was deferred when I was waiting for a longing to be fulfilled, but that is not true. It is a lie from the enemy. I don’t know what would make hope deferred, but my hope is in God, the One Who is, Who was, and Who always will be. My hope in God is not deferred. I am in a waiting period. I have to wait for what I want. But while I am waiting, my hope, my strength, and my life will always be in God.
Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God. 1 Peter 1:21
Rest in His presence.
