I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry

Psalm 40:1

Like you, I’ve spent my life waiting – waiting to see a doctor, waiting for my turn to board a plane in a crowded airport terminal, waiting for someone to call, waiting
in a checkout line at the grocery store. Some waits are mundane, some are outright
boring, and some are filled with anxiety. The real question is, what’s happening
within us while we wait? How are we spending our time in that wait?

In that grocery store line, or that airport terminal, or that doctor’s office, are
we spending time with the Lord? So much of our lives are filled with anxieties and
worries, and yet, we have heard so many people say, “I have no time to pray, or
read the Bible. My life is too hectic.” Yet, we all spend so much of our lives waiting
here or there. What if we would choose to spend those waiting times in prayer? What
would happen to us while we wait?

I love Psalm 40:1 that says, “I waited patiently for the Lord and He inclined to
me and heard my cry.” I love it because, just as I wait patiently for the Lord,
the Lord is also patiently waiting for me to call on Him.

Our waiting times in life may just be the time that transforms our lives.


Heavenly Father, in these quiet times of waiting in life, I draw near to You in
prayer. Cradle me in Your loving arms as I worship Your Holy name. In Jesus’ name,

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
