Waiting for Him
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope. My soul waits for the Lord, more than those who watch for the morning-Yes, more than those who watch for the morning. -Psalm 130:5-6
So many times we bring our requests before You, hoping for instant answers and easy direction. Sometimes You meet our needs generously and quickly and spoil us with Your great love and kindness.
Help us to understand that when we have to wait longer, when we must be patient before the answer comes, that it is not that You have withdrawn Your favor or that You delay the answer out of a desire to simply make us wait, but that You are working all things together for our good and that the process itself takes time.
Help us to always speak our hearts and minds to You in genuine faith,believing that You want the best for us at all times. Grant that we might rest in Your hand until the measure of our faith and the grace of Your will for us brings the blessing we hope to receive.
In all things, Lord, keep us ever mindful that You hear us and are already moving before us to answer.
Praise You , O Lord!
A Worthy Thought
We must wait for God, long, meekly, in the wind and wet, in the thunder and lightning, in the cold and the dark. Wait, and He will come. He never comes to those who do not wait. -F.W.Faber
