"My soul, wait thou only upon God, for my expectation is from him." Ps 62:6
We all find ourselves in a place of waiting from time to time and it’s not always easy.
I am here…waiting. Again. Wasn’t I just here Lord?
I find comfort in knowing You see me and that You are here with me. You have not left me alone. Never ever, You are always with me. You are my God El Roi (the God who sees) and Jehovah-shammah(The Lord is there). Oh how that brings peace to my soul!
So I continue to wait for You, my God. You are my life, my joy and only in You can I trust. I will wait for You no matter what the circumstances of my life seem to be. You alone will direct me.
This is my prayer…
God I want to please only you with my life. Help me have the courage to wait even when I begin to fail in my patience.
God help me to remember that you are my El Shaddai, my all sufficient one. And if my life seems to be standing still help me to see it through your eyes. Help me to understand this time as I wait for you to reveal your complete purposes in me. Help me to fully serve You even in the little things. Continue to teach me and mold me into your humble servant, until I fully see that it’s You alone that I need.
Father I know I am in good company. Moses waited until you made him ready to be used mightily to set Your people free. Abraham waited for the son of promise. Joseph waited, seemingly forgotten, in prison for you to reveal the purpose you had for him. I am encouraged Father to know that not all these always waited patiently and did the right things. But in spite of their sometimes rushing ahead, You continued working in them. And they continued to wait on You.
Father as I wait, help me to not become discouraged. Help me to not trust in anything or anyone but you. Father I know you have a plan and purpose for my life and I wait with an attitude of worship. Father I know that even in the waiting of your will I am being changed, renewed and purified so that I am better suited for Your purposes.
Father I may not always understand, but what I do know is that I can wait with hope and great expectation because it is You and You alone that I find peace, comfort and joy. I know you have a purpose for my life and will work out all things –even the unseen.
I wait upon You, Lord. Amen
