Read: Psalm 130:5-6
Study: In this Psalm, the psalmist was comparing waiting on the Lord to the night guards of the city. They would sit and wait for the coming down. The coming of dawn was certain but not without the passage of time. In our world, we want things now. We have a hard time waiting for anything. God doesn’t always give us what we ask for immediately. Our God is a God beyond time.The Lord calls us to be patient like a guard waiting for the dawn.
Pray: Father God, give me the patience to wait for you to act in my life. I pray that you give me the patience of a guard waiting for the sun to rise. Amen.
