Wait for the Lord

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.
                                                 —Psalm 37:7

Try these “wait” verses on for size. You’ll find one that fits.

Wait for the Lord, and he will deliver you (Prov. 20:22).
The Lord longs to be gracious to you … Blessed are all who wait for him (Isa. 30:18).
Those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength … They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary (Isa. 40:31 NASB).
The Lord is good to those who wait for him …  (Lam. 3:25-26).

Sometimes it seems that God walks slowly. He has his reasons, so let him set the pace—his timing is always perfect.

Don’t mistake God’s delays for denials.
