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. O Israel, hope in the LORD! For with the LORD there is steadfast love, and with Him is plentiful redemption. And He will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
Waiting for You, Lord, hoping for You; a hard lesson that demands that I sacrifice my will to Yours. The old nature in me demands action, that I do something, anything, but do something. The new man says, "Wait, wait for the Lord."
So, Lord, as the watchmen wait and watch for signs of morning, I am learning to watch for signs of Your presence in my life. I am learning to treasure those moments when I, through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, am able to curb my impatience and wait, wait, wait in the joy of Your presence. for it is there that there is steadfast love and plentiful redemption.
