Do you find waiting hard? Would you say you are a patient person? Have you asked God for something, but have had no response yet?
Psalm 40 reassures us that God does hear us when we cry out to Him, especially when we are desperate. Sometimes God allows us to go to that place of desperation so that our cries to Him are heartfelt and real. Then God lifts us up and gives us that hope and security that we have been longing for.
Yet God goes above and beyond this security, He changes us, He changes our hearts so that we can give Him praise and thanksgiving.
So if you are waiting on God today, rest assured that He has a new song to give to you. Trust in Him and give Him your praise and stand secure on His rock.
Father God, thank you that your desire for me is to trust you and patiently wait for you. Thank you that you are always there to help me. May my heart be filled with praise so that I can live in the fullness of your love. Amen
