We must patiently wait with hope and eager expectation that God will keep all His promises, even those promises that are not yet fully realized. Because God has promised that one day our salvation will be fully accomplished, we can live our lives with joy and hope that God will fulfill every word of what He promised. We must let our hope in God and His promises fuel our waiting on this earth, even in suffering, pain, or disappointment. Our waiting here on this side of heaven should not be a dreary, insignificant existence, but one that yields joy and productivity. As Christians, we can thrive for the glory of God in our waiting.
