I wait for you, O Lord; you will answer, O Lord my God. NIV
Faith. Hope. Trust.
David has all of these things. In this Psalm, he writes of being weary and persecuted. Verses 10 says“My heart’s about to break; I’m a burned-out case” MSG
But even though he is at the end of his rope, he waits, in hope, for God.
I am so thankful for David’s example.
This morning, as I was looking at the occurrences of the word, “wait” in the New International Version of the Bible, Psalm 33:20 caught my eye, “We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.” NIV
God is my hope. He knows the future. My hope is in Him.
He is my help. I may not have the strength to withstand all that I encounter here, but, His strength is limitless.
He is my shield. I don’t have to worry about standing up against all of the circumstances that might assail me here … God is my shield.
“I will wait for you, O Lord.” I will wait and hope and not worry about the future. “You will answer, O Lord my God.”
That’s what I’ll think about today.
