“Be Patient” by Rick Sanders

Sometimes it is difficult to be patient with God. David even says this in Psalm 119:81.

I am worn out waiting for your (the LORD’s) rescue,…

We have our own time frame we think is best. Or, we feel or worry about the result. In the end, we do not trust God to be there like He said He would be. But David says,

“…but I have put my hope in your word.”

David falls back on God’s word to relieve his anxiousness. This way there is more comfort in the waiting to allow God to work in His time frame.

Also, David prays and questions God to show his faith in God to work things out for David.

“How long must I wait?” “When will you punish those who persecute me?” (Verse 84)

Understand, we all get impatient. David solved the problem in several ways.

  • He wrote about the wait.
  • He puts his hope in God’s word.
  • He prays about the wait.
  • He submits his questions to God.
  • He practices his faith.

What do you do when you cannot wait anymore?
