waiting for God's help?

Abraham's faith seemed to be in complete agreement with the power and constant faithfulness of Jehovah. by looking at the outer circumstances in which he was placed, he had no reason to expect the fulfillment of God's promise. yet he believed the Word of the Lord and looked forward to the time when his descendants wound be "as numerous as the stars in the sky." (Genesis 26:4). dear soul, you have not been given only one promise, like Abraham, but a thousand promises. and you have been given the example of many faithfyl believers as a pattern for your life. therefore it is simply to your advantage to rely with confidence upon the Word of God. and although He may delay in sending His help, and the evil you are experiencing may seem to become worse and worse, do not be weak. instead, be strong and rejoice, for God usually steps forward to save us when we least expect it, fulfilling His most glorious promises in a miraculous way.
