I waited patiently for the LordPsalm 40:1a”
David was a man in deep distress, but in spite of his situation he not only waited but he waited patiently; he exhibited a patient persevering trust in God – it was in an attitude of expectant hope.
You have a choice you can wait anxiously, worried and agitated or you can wait with a calm resolve of expectant hope, where your soul is at peace. You can only wait that way if you are waiting for the Lord.
David waited for the Lord because he knew that only He could help him. Who is the object of your trust, a man, a girlfriend, a Pastor…?
David said in Psalm 62:1“Truly my soul waits silently for the Lord.” Waiting is not easy for most of us but the writer to the Hebrews encourages us in chapter 10:35, “Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward for you have need of endurance so that after you have done the will of God you may receive the promise.”
He continues in vs. 37-38 “For yet a little while, and He who is coming will come and will not tarry…”
Are you waiting for relief in a difficult situation, then wait for the Lord, don’t wait on your best friend or someone else… wait on the Lord and do it with expectant joyful hope.
