Our Souls Long for the Lord’s Salvation

However many times we find ourselves lost and alone, God is there listening, waiting for us to draw near. He is our steadfast fortress, our rock and our salvation. No trial is too hard, no tribulation is too difficult for us to overcome with the Lord’s help.

“My soul longs for your salvation;
I hope in your word.
My eyes long for your promise;
I ask, ‘When will you comfort me?’”

(Psalms 119:81-82)

We long for the Lord’s comfort. His ways are perfect, righteous and just. He will never abandon us. He will never leave us by the wayside. He has promised to be there for us in our time of need. He will never give up on us, for He is the great God.

Wonderful is our God, who sacrificed His son Jesus so that we may live; our sins are no more and our iniquities shall never separate us from our Father’s love. We can humbly come before His throne asking for forgiveness, and He will forgive us.

Happy are we knowing God has our reward stored in heaven, as we wait for the day when we will be together with Him forever. Great is He who has given us hope. Wonderful is He who has promised us eternal life. Our souls long for the Lord’s salvation.

  2. Thus saith the LORD , Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.
