Psalms 40:1-2 Daily Devotional
I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
– Psalms 40:1-2
The Lord doesn’t always move immediately, but he does hear the cries of his people. Patience is usually required. He is faithful to bring us out of our mess and put us on a firm foundation.
The application here is to patiently wait on God. It’s hard to hear that the best course of action is to do nothing, but it seems that’s often the case.
Father, help me wait patiently on you. I have needs and wants that haven’t been fulfilled, but I know I have all I really need in you. You will never leave me or forsake me, so I wait on you to fulfill those desires. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
