The Trial Of Waiting

Reading from the Book of Psalm 40:1-3
Psalm 40:1 I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.

Waiting for God to help us is not easy, but David recieved four benefits from waiting:

1. God lifted him out of his despair,
2. God set his feet on solid ground,
3. God steadied him as he walked, and
4. God put a new song of praise in his mounth.

Often blessings cannot be received unless we go thought the trial of waiting.

Father God, I ask for patience as I wait on Your Word and Your direction. Bring us peace, Lord, and give us contentment as we wait for Your answers to all our hurts, frustrations and confusion. Thank You, Father. Amen
