Praise in Waiting
All  |  Dec 19, 2022

I wait in the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning.

Psalm 130:5-6

Expectation and prayer. We often find ourselves going to God in times of (more) immediate need. We expect God to answer, but we often desire a quick answer. We see the Psalmist offer another way. Waiting. We can hold our expectation of God's faithfulness while we wait. Waiting is a good practice for us to gain a better perspective and understanding of what we are asking of God. God does not have to meet our expectations, but it is a good practice of faith to expect God to answer our prayers because he is able.

Action: Read Psalm 130. Pray for a willingness to wait on God. What would a practice of patience look like for you this week? How can you praise God in waiting?
