Wait

“Wait” is a word of direction for our heart to rest in God’s impeccable timing.  Psalm 5:3 says, “My voice You shall heart in the morning, O Lord; in the morning I will direct it to You, and I will look up.”  The Amplified says, “…watch and wait (for You to speak to my heart).”

Isaiah 30:18 says that those who wait for the Lord are blessed.  That means that waiting bears fruit that glorifies the Lord.

Waiting is another way that the Lord gives us strength.  Psalm 27:14 says, “Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord!”  Isaiah 40:31 says that He strengthens those who wait on Him.

Psalm 62:5 reminds us that waiting is silencing our heart.  It says, “My soul, wait silently for God alone, for my expectation is from Him.”  To wait is the posture of trust.
