Sometimes Wait

Maybe you noticed, maybe not, my post didn’t come out bright and early in the morning. Sometimes the message is ‘wait’. I’m not a good ‘waiter’.

Is waiting a hard thing for you? Some don’t notice the ‘waits’, they just keep doing life. Often, I get lost in the waiting, thinking when it’s over that’s when life starts again. Time for a makeover – better late than never.

In Psalm 27 David went in and out of confidence in the Lord. Knowing God was his ‘light and salvation, his stronghold’. Declaring trouble would come, ‘for in the day of trouble’. Asking for the Lord to protect him, ‘do not leave me or forsake me’. Finally, declaring God’s goodness and saying: “Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.” (Psalm 27:14 NIV)

I think that David, like you and I, went from knowing He needed to rely on God and wait for Him, to being in despair throughout his life. Yet the Lord never did forsake him – and that is our truth as well. He will not leave us either.

“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me” (Psalm 23:4a NIV) Nothing changes with God – Jesus assured us of that. He told us He would be with us until the end of the age – and then we would be with Him.

So, in the waiting, the sometimes where we can’t get beyond what we are preoccupied with, faced with, feeling like we’re about to sink because of – we need to know God’s truth. Not ‘oh I know’ – know it because His Word is in us. We need to call it to mind and say it to ourselves or shout it out loud. And we can speak it to others who may be in the valley.

Long before the wait comes, long before the fear takes over, and long before we do walk in that valley – we must use that time to immerse ourselves in our Hope.

Then whether we’re living life and in the good times or we’re not sure what solid ground feels like, still this will be our call to the One in control: “As for me, I look to the LORD for help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me.” (Micah 7:7 NLT)
