May 5: Waiting on God’s Timing

We’re on day 2 of waiting on God. Sometimes it’s difficult to wait. But God promises blessings to those who wait:

For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

Psalm 37:9

Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.

Psalm 123:2

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint

Isaiah 40:31

What exactly does it mean to wait upon the Lord?

Waiting on the Lord necessitates two key elements: a complete dependence on God and a willingness to allow Him to decide the terms, including the timing of His plan. Trusting God with the timing of events is one of the hardest things to do.

If you need a musical reminder, here’s another song from Patch the Pirate:

Spend a couple minutes today waiting on the Lord.
