May 5: Waiting on God’s Timing

We’re on day 2 of waiting on God. Sometimes it’s difficult to wait. But God promises blessings to those who wait:

For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

Psalm 37:9

Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.

Psalm 123:2

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint

Isaiah 40:31

What exactly does it mean to wait upon the Lord?

Waiting on the Lord necessitates two key elements: a complete dependence on God and a willingness to allow Him to decide the terms, including the timing of His plan. Trusting God with the timing of events is one of the hardest things to do.
