The greatness of God is such that who can compare to Him - vs(25). We are at times challenged in this area when it comes to waiting. Noah spent about 13 months in the ark until dry land emerged so that he could exit. Joseph spent years between his dreams and the realization of them. First it was the pit, then Potiphar's house, then jail, then several years serving in Pharaoh's court.
We must never forget that nothing takes God by surprise. No, not even Covid-19. He is in control. God gives strength and encouragement when we are at our wits end. It is He that renews our strength.
