Psalm 130:5: Wait for God

Thursday, June 27, 2019

I wait for Yahweh, my soul waits for him, I rely on his promise, my soul relies on the Lord more than a watchman on the coming of dawn.

I imagine that a watchman feels great relief with the advent of the first rays of light.  The strain of peering through darkness, watching for an enemy that may or may not be present must be endured . . . else the entire city or camp is put in danger.  All of this readiness and waiting are sometimes too difficult to bear.

God says: I know that you seek me and this is good.  The more you seek, the more you realize my love for you.  I, too, yearn to have you secure with me.  Remember that I always keep my promises . . . and I have plans for your welfare, not your woe.  You cannot imagine the wonderful serenity and bliss I have in mind for you.  I love you still.  I love you always.  Wait for me.  Watch for me.  I am with you even now. 

May you fully know the intense love God has for you.  Trust in him alone.  He is the source of all that is good.
