Circumstances can determine how you wait. If the situation is pressing, there may be something of the urgent that makes waiting very difficult. How often we need to let God know what time it is and how He needs to be quick.
This Psalm is great for helping with waiting. This reminds us that because of the nature of the one we’re waiting for. Reminding ourselves of his enormous worth and His reliable track record, it is for us to go with Jim rather than the reports on the circumstances.
Indeed if God really is the one thing we desire then it puts waiting into perspective. Seeing Him operate and trusting Him can do wonders for us.
It can at least help us to wait better.
For His Name’s Sake
