Therefore the LORD is waiting to show you mercy, and is rising up to show you compassion, for the LORD is a just God. Happy are all who wait patiently for Him.
If you are waiting for God to answer your prayer today and it seems a long long time coming, then don't give up. It is not just you who are waiting. God is watching you very closely and He himself is waiting for the right time to shower you with His mercy. He will answer you. It maybe a yes, a no, or a call to wait, but He will come and with Him His love and mercy and compassion.
