And even if things are slow to happen, as they may well be, or even if it seems that God’s gone silent and is inactive, so long as you retain your trust in Him then He’ll reveal Himself in marvellous ways. The Scriptures tell us that nobody, nobody at all who has set their hope on God has ever been put to shame. David puts it beautifully: ‘Look back at generations of old and find even one person who hoped in God and was put to shame’. Find one person who can say ‘I had my hope in Christ and Christ didn’t respond. He didn’t help me. He abandoned me’. You won’t find a single one.
