"Wait!"

“Wait!”

I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait, and in His word do I hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than the watchmen for the morning; indeed, more than the watchmen for the morning. Psalm 130:5-6

One word most people don’t want to hear is the word “WAIT” because it brings with it anticipation, longing, anxiousness and the dreaded PATIENCE, which some of us fear a little, because sometimes when we are being taught PATIENCE, it becomes a HARD LESSON to learn. Nevertheless, it is a WELL-NEEDED lesson for each of us.

WAITING for the Lord, always seems to be difficult, because most of the time we are dealing with UNKNOWN circumstances, and we get ANXIOUS for Him to reveal His plans for us. The Psalmist here, was WAITING for the Lord to reveal His merciful dealings with the nation of Israel.

So to help him cope with the WAITING period, along with a WELL-NEEDED lesson in PATIENCE, he said, “in His Word do I HOPE.” Very GOOD advice, while we are in GOD’S WAITING ROOM, we will get some release from our anxiety, and eagerness, by READING and STUDYING the Word of God, and MEDITATING on it continually, and putting our HOPE in it.

Not only was he WAITING physically, but also SPIRITUALLY. He said, “My SOUL WAITS for the Lord.” Now those of us who have been or are in God’s WAITING ROOM, we know how it affects us PHYSICALLY, but it is EXTREMELY hard to WAIT SPIRITUALLY also. That’s when the Holy Spirit of God works in us, because He is our COMFORTOR, and we can have FAITH and PATIENCE through Him, in order to PERSERVERE until God is READY to reveal His plans.

The Psalmist compares his WAIT to that of a WATCHMEN, as they waited for morning to come, when they would be relieved by another WATCHMEN, who took up the duty of WAITING, and watching the gates of the city. They were STEADFAST and PATIENT with their WAITING time. So it should be with the TRUE BELIEVER, who’s FAITH and HOPE is in the Lord. Where does your FAITH and HOPE lie? If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are NOT a TRUE BELIEVER, and while you might face DIFFICULT circumstances and have to WAIT for relief to come, you have little or NO FAITH or HOPE, and you do not have a COMFORTOR to help you through these DIFFICULT WAITING PERIODS in your life. In order for you to find RELIEF and GUIDANCE in your DIFFICULT WAITING PERIODS, and to SECURE your ETERNITY in Heaven instead of Hell, you MUST come to God with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING, your sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be able to face your DIFFICULT WAITING PERIODS with FAITH, HOPE and PATIENCE. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!

Mood: hopeful
