“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His Word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.” - Psalm‬ ‭130:5-6

Learning to wait on the Lord is a lifelong exercise. He generally starts us out small; as new believers we may have to wait briefly for an answer to prayer. Little by little as we learn how it works He stretches our faith. We find ourselves able to pray for bigger things with a strong and sincere faith and wait as long as we need to wait. That doesn’t mean it’s easy.

But God tenderly works with us, strengthening our faith as He gradually gets us ready for the next, bigger test. We learn to wait on Him, trusting in His Word, standing on His promises, trusting in Him. It’s all a part of His training program for what comes next, after this life.

Meanwhile, we learn to wait during the long hours of a dark night. Like a night watchman, we stand guard over what has been entrusted to us with every confidence that no matter how long the night, the morning will certainly come. He will keep His promises in His own way and in His own time; and He will come to us at the right moment.

Father, I’m waiting. I know You have heard me. I know Your love for me is greater than I can understand. I know You have engraved me on the palm of Your hand so that it’s impossible for You to forget me. I know that even this wait is because of Your love and concern for me. I don’t have to understand any more than that. I will trust in You and in Your Word, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
