I waited patiently for the LORD;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the LORD.
Guess he’s been waiting a while to see the doctor.
As I looked at him occasionally – trying to be subtle so he wouldn’t feel like I was staring (smile), I couldn’t help but think that many of us feel as if we have been waiting for what seems an eternity for lots of things in our personal lives to get better or change.
Waiting for God to show us the “next thing” He is calling us to do.
Waiting for medical test results
Waiting for forgiveness or waiting for a heart to forgive.
Waiting for peace in a not-so-peaceful season.
Waiting for answers.
Waiting for our joy to return after grief.
Well, the good news is this:
God promises that when we wait patiently, He will come through in His time…..and I have learned through the years that His Word never fails..
I guess peace comes from trusting that “He knows best” and that He is working even when while we’re waiting.
Hmmmmmmmm.. maybe that’s why we’re called “patients” in a doctor’s office.
Because we are called to have patience while waiiting.
I hope you are waiting patiently, and I pray that while you are waiting, you will “cry out to God” trusting Him to take care of your every need.
Remember, many are watching you as you wait.
Help them to see and fear so that they too can put their trust in the Lord.
Waiting for Him,
