I’m Done Waiting, God!

Read

Psalm 62

We are all riding the waves of life, experiencing ups and downs. Sometimes the hardest place to be is waiting for the next wave to come. It could be waiting for the doctor to call with the results or waiting on God to open the next door of opportunity. Whatever it is, however hopeless we may feel while waiting on God, His plans are always better than ours.

The psalmist in Psalm 62 was under attack by his enemies, and the only action he could take was to wait on God. We have a choice to make when God makes us wait. We can either let our situation push us closer to Him, or we can let it push us to a state of misery. David chose to push closer to God while he waited.

If we make the same choice, then waiting on God is one of the most faith producing things we will do in life. To have faith means we have hope and trust in God. There are two reasons in Psalm 62 that show why we can trust God. “One thing God has spoken, two things I have heard: ‘Power belongs to You, God, and with You, Lord, is unfailing love’” (Psalm 62:11-12).

God makes us wait because it builds faith. There aren’t many things in life that teach us the way waiting does. Psalm 62 reveals that while we wait, we have the opportunity to learn how to abide in Christ, to trust Him fully, and to be patient with His timing.

The choice is ours. We can make all the plans we want, but our future is in God’s powerful hands. God is able to do all that He promises and is faithful to His children. He is a good God and wants to bless us beyond our imaginations. All He asks from us is that we trust Him and remain faithful in our current situations.

Reflect:

  • How do you react when things don’t go your way? Do you display godly patience by trusting in God or do you dig yourself into a hole of hopelessness?
  • What is one thing you are waiting on God for right now?
  • What is one step you can take to build your faith in seasons of waiting?
