In the morning, Lord, You hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before You
and wait expectantly. (Psalm 5:3)
Why do I have to wait, Lord?
Anxious during this wait,
I fret more and think more;
Trying to reason out the answer,
I become more focused inward,
Never understanding the why as . . .
God, You are waiting for me.
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood. (1 Corinthians 13:12)
Waiting for answers to requests we ask before the Lord are sometimes trying and difficult. The difficulty lies within you and within me, however. We need more hope, more faith, more trust in Him. We truly cannot see or understand what God sees and knows ahead and beyond anything we can comprehend.
8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
Lord, help us to wait patiently with the faith that You are always with us. Help us to fully trust in Your goodness and wisdom to direct our paths in this life.
