A man in pain, sorrow and deep in a situation which gets worse by the day finds no use for the advice, “Wait patiently on God”.
“I waited patiently for Yahweh. He turned to me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay. He set my feet on a rock, and gave me a firm place to stand.” – Psalms 40:1-2
David records how he waited patiently for God. This means he turned to God and God turned to him and heard his cry.
It is interesting how the text places emphasis on patience to qualify the type of waiting required. Waiting on someone is never complete unless patience is added to it.
Who do you turn to in times of your difficulties and challenges? Abraham had to wait on the Lord for years, a very good number of years and the Lord never disappointed. He has never disappointed and will never.
Cry to the Lord your God in the midst of your “Wahala” and wait patiently on HIM and surely HE will turn to you and just as He did for David, HE will do much more greater and mighty things for you to the marvel of your doubters.
My prayer is that we all get David’s kind of attitude and virtue of patience to be able to wait on the Lord for as long as He will take to accomplish His Will for our lives.
Faithful is He who said He will do, Wait patiently on God.
