Another word for hope is confidence. As we know to wait on the Lord, to wait upon the wisdom in knowing when to act and when to wait we increasingly know a confidence and trust that things will work out fine. Sometimes when we are challenged by a situation we may act frantically which makes the circumstance seem hopeless. If we remember just to upright our self and take a deep breath in orienting to honor the Lord in our expression we will find the “breath of life” sustaining us and giving us just enough patience to let wisdom be received into our heart and mind knowing a confidence that allows us to handle such moments with mastery.
Our steps are put in order as we listen to what those steps would be of the Lord. It is not a complicated thing to discern those steps for they are what we would do naturally anyway. When we are influenced by that which is not natural being prompted by such things as envy and dislike we find our steps are disordered. When we recognize the steps that are in character with the presence of the Lord such as those of joy, love and understanding and move accordingly we find that we are blessed. We find that it is a delight to live in this way.
