But You, O LORD--how long?
I read “how long?” and it was the cry of my heart today! We are traveling and it's the traveling cry. “How long before we get there?” I think every kid says that! I’m saying it today! How long, Craig? Are we there yet, Craig? Yes, I'm a child!
This made me think of all the “how long” cries in the scripture. It is the cry of longing desire, of expectation! The present dark, evil world gets to me. I’m looking forward to the coming of the Lord Jesus and all that will unfold in the future. The future is bright! How long, Lord? Are we there yet, Lord?
Then I remembered His answer:
And behold, I am coming quickly. Revelation 22:7
Amen! Come Lord Jesus!
O Lord Jesus, how long, how long
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
