David’s Waiting Room
Psalm 40:1-4 – I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy put, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord. Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.
Waiting. That seems to be the common theme of how we feel lately. Waiting on God’s healing of our bodies. Waiting for it be January 2012 so C.J will be back in TX. Waiting to see what God has for us in the future. Waiting to find out when will become parents.
I listened to a sermon today called Waiting Room that I will write more about later, but as I was reading tonight I came across this passage of David’s wait. As David cried out to the Lord and waited patiently he saw four benefits.
- God lifted him out of his despair
- God set his feet on a rock
- God gave him a firm place to stand
- God put a new song of praise in his mouth
Often blessings cannot be received unless we go through the trial of waiting.
