Waiting

Psalm 40.1 "I waited patiently for the Lord, and He inclined His ear to me, and He heard my cry."

He hears, He listens, He lends His ear to us. This is our confidence. This is why we can wait patiently.

Psalm 40.4 "Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust, and does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies."

Happy are we when we trust in Him - favored with His blessing, His provision of care. This is our portion when we put our hope in Him alone. Sometimes that requires waiting, so wait patiently. Do not be tempted to look for shortcuts or help from another source. Do not turn to the proud or deceitful. Trust only in Him.

As I completed my reading of Psalms for day #10 (you read the Psalm with today's date, then adding 30 you read the next 4 Psalms - 10, 40, 70, 100, 130), I found many exhortations to wait. Something tells me that trials are common to all men, and waiting patiently and with hope is difficult.

Psalm 130.5,6 "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."

Do you remember waiting for the morning in those nights when nightmares have troubled you, or when sickness is plaguing you? How eagerly I watch for the first rays of light, marking the end of my long vigil. How confident I am that morning will come, and with it will come relief as well as fresh hope and expectation. This is how we wait for the Lord.

Wait for Him - do not lose hope - do not look elsewhere. He is inclining His ear to you even now.
