Wait Patiently

A pregnant woman knows a lot about waiting. But waiting on the Lord seems so hard sometimes. We expect God to just come in and rescue us as soon as we cry to Him. Sometimes He doesn't come, or seem to come, right away. The psalmist really believed that God was coming. A pregnant woman knows that the day will come when she will hold her little one. We too can know that God will come. When we wait for God, it isn't a hoping and waiting. It is an expectant waiting. We wait with confidence: He WILL come! He will answer my prayer. He will heal my heart. He will make me see sunlight again.



Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him...
Those who wait on the Lord,
They shall inherit the earth.
Psalm 37:7, 9
Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
for my hope is in Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress where I will not be shaken.
My victory and honor come from God alone.
He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.
O my people, trust in Him at all times.
Pour out your heart to Him,
for God is our refuge.
Psalm 62:5-8
I am still confidence of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.
Psalm 27:13-14
