Psalm 38:15 "I wait for You, O LORD; You will answer, O LORD my God."
When I was little, it seemed like Christmas took forever to arrive. The early snow in November set in motion the anticipation for Christmas. And it took s-o-o-o-o long! Now, as an adult, it seems like Christmas arrives so quickly! I never seem to have enough time to get everything ready and I'm so rushed I can hardly enjoy the holiday!
When we pray, it can seem like we're kids and God takes s-o-o-o long to answer our prayer. Today's psalm captures that anticipation. But it also gives great comfort in stating the fact that God does answer. There's no doubt about it. God will answer. How can we know for sure? Again the psalm gives the answer-because God is Lord. He is master of all, in charge of everything, and all-powerful.
Waiting on the Lord? Know this, He will answer-for Jesus' sake.
