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” (Prv 20:22).

“The Lord longs to be gracious to you . . . Blessed are all who wait for him” (Is 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” (Is 40:31).

“The Lord is wonderfully good to those who wait for him and seek him” (Lam 3:25).

Sometimes it seems that God walks slowly. He has his reasons, so let him set the pace.

Don’t mistake God’s delays for denials.
