Waiting is often stressful. It is exhausting. But we, in essence, wait for that which we desire. If a restaurant we enjoy is crowded we will wait. In other words, waiting conveys the affection and yearning of our heart. And so the psalmist in Psalm 130 proclaims that believers should wait on the Lord. The writer was earnest to receive divine insight, and so the writer waited for God’s guidance. Yes, waiting is stressful. Waiting is exhausting. But if we wait for God’s Word, a Word that yields tremendous hope, we will find that waiting on the Lord is always worth it.
Psalm 130:5 “I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.” (NIV)
