Dearly Beloved,
WAIT PATIENTLY FOR THE LORD
“I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry” (Psalm 40:1 NIV).
After God rejected Saul as king of Israel and sent Samuel to anoint David as the next king (1 Samuel 15-16), David faced a lot of hostilities and troubles even from his brothers. He became a fugitive in his own country. He had to relocate his parents to a foreign country for safety (see 1 Samuel 22:3-4). He twice sought refuge with the enemies of his nation (see 1 Samuel 21:10-15; 27:1-12). In spite of all his predicaments, he patiently waited for the LORD, even after the death of Saul. The LORD did not let him down. He turned to him and lifted him out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire. The LORD set his feet on a rock and gave him a firm place to stand in Israel and among other nations. The LORD put a new song in his mouth, a hymn of praise. Many indeed saw these and feared and put their trust in the LORD during the lifetime of David. No wonder, David could write Psalm 40 to testify to the goodness of God.
Life is full of ups and downs. Every person has his/her own dilemma to confront. However, only those who patiently wait for the LORD will successfully overcome these dilemmas and sing song of praises like David. They are the ones that “will find their strength renewed. They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak” (Isaiah 40:31 TEV).
What are you facing presently? Wait patiently for the LORD! He will bring you out of the predicament. He will lift you up out of the mud of life. He will set your feet on a rock and gave him a firm place to stand among your contemporaries. He will put a new song in your mouth, a hymn of praise to His holy name. Many people will indeed see it and praise God with you. They will fear and trust God for what He will do in your life.
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all” (Psalm 34:19 NKJV).
Wait patiently for the LORD!
In His service,
Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor).
