Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. 21 For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Psalm 33: 20-21
Aside from the many good things we find in this verse, the one that needs our attention is ”waits”. The world in which we live expects a speedy response yesterday, to the troubles we express today, so that our future may be bright. However, the word “waits” directs us to have patience and to trust in the Lord. It is good to be reminded of that. If it is not that our impatience gets the better of us, it might be that our situation makes us unhappy. Let us be mindful of the apostle, who had to learn to wait for the Lord to remove the thorn from his flesh, which never happened. Paul learned to be content in all circumstances. Philippians 4: 11.
