Before beginning a game or competition a sport team anxiously awaits the starting buzzer. As the clock ticks down teams use it to warm-up – get ready – set their minds – orient themselves to the surroundings etc. These are positive responses while waiting for the anticipated go!
Waiting for what’s next can be difficult and grueling just as it was for David, a man after God’s own heart, who cried out…
But as for me, I am poor and needy; please hurry to my aid, O God. You are my helper and my savior; O Lord, do not delay. Psalm 70:5 NLT
It is in the throes of waiting that hope and trust in our God is birthed. So wait... not with “fists-clenched resignation” but with wide-eyed expectation and childlike trust in the One who loves you most!
I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning. Psalm 130:5-6 NIV
PRAYER: Dear Lord, I hear your voice saying, “Wait awhile and see what I will do.” So I wait….expectantly, patiently, and trusting you! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
MY SOUL WAITS ON THE LORD!
