Psalms 39:7

KJV - And now, Lord, what wait I for. My hope is in thee.

NIV- But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.

I have learned in life not to plan too far ahead. Things always come up that we did not anticipate, things break down and the little stash we had squirreled away went for something other than what we intended. Unfortunately, those little clauses found in this verse that include the huge words, now and wait have a way of changing our plans. We may do well to consider them. Now forces us to deal with the immediacy of things - contingencies, deadlines, and demands that simply cannot be postponed. Wait implies a sense of anxiety. Uncertain times force us to ponder a future over which we have little or no control.

God's Word tells us not to trifle over petty matters and place our trust fully in Him. How many joyful "nows" have been diminished because of the "waits?" Worrying about things which are not in our control often keeps us from what we should be doing right now: listening to God and acting upon His will.

Our Lord tells many times to be of good cheer, to be courageous, to place our hope in Him. Every time that we allow a future consideration to occupy our thoughts we fail to do what we should be doing now. A little joy of the present escapes to the chasm of the elusive future.

Before God ever spoke the world into existence, He knew us. He knows His plans for our future that are full of joy. He knows our flaws and He knows what we are capable of achieving when we let Him lead us with His precious Holy Spirit. There is no reason in the world to allow the "wait" in life to detract from the "now." Get busy, He needs you to be at your best today.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
