Wait

Psalm 62:1-2 (NRSV)-


Song of Trust in God Alone


To the leader: according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of David.


1 For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. 2 He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall never be shaken.



Thought-


We can all agree that life is filled with ups and downs. However, sometimes, the hardest place to be is in a place of waiting in between life’s hills and valleys.


Perhaps we are waiting for the doctor to call with test results or for God to open a new opportunity. And, when change does not happen as quickly as we think it should, we start to slip into the minefields of our minds and wonder why.


When David wrote Psalm 62, he was in a hard place and under attack from his enemies. As tempting as it might have been to act and take matters into his own hands, David chose to wait on God.


Contrary to what we may feel or think, the safest place to be when we feel like we are under attack is waiting on the Lord. He alone has all power and all control. And, when we choose to wait for God, we experience his presence like never before.


Our hearts grow closer to God when are waiting for him. Our ears are more alert to God’s voice when we are desperate to hear from him. And, our eyes are quicker to recognize his power and provision when we have been looking for him to move. So, when we pour out our hearts to God and wait for him to make the way, we see him do what only he can do, and, in the process, we learn to trust him more.


Today, let’s remember that while we tend to put our trust in lots of places, nowhere is safer than trusting and waiting for God.



Prayer-

Father God, rather than putting my trust in my own abilities, please help me to place my trust in you. Rather than taking things into my own hands and acting on my own accord, please teach me to wait for you to move. And, as I wait, please guide to me experience the magnitude of your presence like never before. In the magnificent and powerful name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!
