What Does it Really Mean to Have a Relationship with God?
If the Lord created the world out of chaos, He can easily deal with any problem that we have. The well of your incompleteness runs deep, but make the effort to look away from yourself and to look toward Him. Suppose this should happen, or suppose that should happen; what could we do; how could we bear it? But, if we are living in the high tower of the dwelling place of God, all these supposes will drop out of our lives.

Nay, do not say ungranted; Perhaps your part is not yet wholly done; The work began when first your prayer was uttered, And God will finish what He has begun. Though years have passed since then, do not despair; His glory you shall see, sometime, somewhere.
For if we do not trust as much as we pray, we fail in full worship to our Lord in our prayer; and also we hinder and hurt ourselves. The reason is that we do not know truly that our Lord is the ground from which our prayer springeth; nor do we know that it is given us by his grace and his love.
For I am sure that no man asketh mercy and grace with sincerity, without mercy and grace being given to him first. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to.

The true subject matter of religion is not our own little souls, but the Eternal God and His whole mysterious purpose, and our solemn responsibility to Him. When God comes down, the impossible becomes a reality. God moves on behalf of the one who waits.
Take Him at His Word. Wait for His victory.
