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.
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?
