Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him.
Psalms 62:5 (NLT)
Why is it hard to wait on God? It is so much easier to fret and worry. Or to take matters into our own hands and do things our way.
Perhaps it is because we have an intellectual assent toward God instead of a heartfelt surrender to Him. We “know about” God but barely know Him. I love the fact that the Psalmist says, “Let all that I am wait quietly before the Lord.” There is a soulful sound to that phrase. A surrender of the heart, a heart that is expectant of those things that the Prophet Isaiah talked about when he wrote, “But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” And so today, let us wait. Stop and commit yourself to Him. Trust Him. Surrender to Him and let Him renew your strength. Today, put your hope in Him.
Dear Father, I come to You today with all that I am. I will wait before You, putting all my trust and hope in You. Renew my strength, lead me in the way I should go. In Jesus’ name I pray.
