Goal: Hope To You
Difficulty: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3/10)
If you’ve ever been in a season of waiting, you know it can be challenging. In Psalm 130, David offers us a blueprint for how to wait well. Let’s jump into this devotion on how to wait well.
I wait for the Lord; I wait and put my hope in His word. I wait for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning – more than watchmen for the morning. Psalm 130:5-6 CSB
Waiting is part of life, and we’ve all experienced both the anticipation and the agony of the wait – the birth of a child, a diagnosis, a marriage proposal – the question is not will we wait, but how will we wait. David offers us a blueprint for how to wait well.
I wait for the Lord.
If we wait for our own outcome to happen, the waiting will eventually disappoint us. David made his declaration to wait for the Lord. It is good to remember that we wait for Someone, not something.
I wait and put my hope in His word.
Where we place our hope is critical. Will we hope in the words of men, or in the Word of God? David knew that God’s Word is true and that God will always be faithful to what He has spoken. Where better to put our hope while we wait?
I wait for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning.
Watchmen in the night longed for the break of day, but not as those who waited to see if it would come, but as those who waited knowing it would come. More than that, David waited for the Lord. Today, creation waits and groans for the return of Jesus. May we wait for it more than the watchmen for the morning!
Father, I wait for You! I put my hope in Your Word and my faith is in Your coming. Teach me, Lord, to wait well.
