Psalm 40:1 “I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.”
This morning, as I sat in the coffee shop enjoying my favorite tea, I noticed a man approach with a little dog. Before he entered the shop, He tied the dog’s leash to a chair and the dog started the process of waiting. Although, I would not liken any of us to our furry, faithful friend, I truly admired the way the dog waited. Every time the door to the shop opened, the dog wagged his tail in anticipation. Meanwhile, the master was sitting close by and watching – watching as the dog anticipated his return. During the wait, admirers came by patting the dog on the head and comforting him.
I pray that the body of Christ will reach that point in our walk with Christ. As we patiently wait for His return, we must know that He is never far away. He is close by watching us and protecting us. He also sends people and situations along the way to comfort us in this journey. If only we wait patiently on Him, while we anticipate His inevitable return. If only we can know that He will never leave us or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:8), and that He is always with us and in us.
Today, let us wait patiently on Him. Although things seem a little scary at times, and we become fearful just know that He is always with us. Also, know that He will return. Have a blessed and wonderful day. Peace~
