The Lord has not forgotten you in your troubles. He has known His plans for you all along. You remember His words to you, His promises that you have held unto oh so tightly through many hard days and long nights of battle. His words are your hope and expectation, and though they may have seemed long in coming the time is nigh. You have fought the fight of faith, and you shall see the goodness of the Lord your God in the land of the living!
Lift up your weary hands and praise Him for the victory. For now there surely comes an end, and your hope and expectation shall be realized.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
18 For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.
