“O my God, I trust in You; let me not be ashamed.” Psalm 25:2
“In You, O LORD, I hope; You will hear, O Lord my God.” Psalm 38:15
“Let no one who waits on You be ashamed.” Psalm 25:3
“Hope does not disappoint.” Romans 5:5
“Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which … abides forever.” Psalm 125:1
“The vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak…. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:3 [See also Isaiah 46:23.]
Does God delay His promises and the enemy raise a suspicion against His faithfulness? Remember, it is said, “Wait.” You are still alive and will be a witness to God’s faithfulness. If He were not faithful and true, He could not be God. His faithfulness is eternal and is as sure and great as Himself — above all our thoughts. You shall, at last, the more gloriously experience it, and not be ashamed. Heaven and earth shall pass away — but His word shall not fail, because “He keeps truth forever.” And His truth concerning His people comprehends all their salvation and all their desire.
Are you tempted to repine or complain? Ponder well the question, “Why should a living man complain, a man for the punishment of his sins?” Then, instead of repining, you will exclaim, “Through the LORD’S mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” Thanks be unto God that I am out of Hell!

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
