The great nineteenth century evangelist George Muller remarked “if you continue to wait patiently and believingly upon God; then answers will surely be given to your prayers.” Today’s reading reminds us that our patience with the Lord will be rewarded in the end, we just may need to be very patient.
Psalm 40:1 - "I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry."
"I waited and waited and waited for God. At last he looked; finally he listened." - Eugene Peterson in the Message
The words 'waiting' and 'patiently' don't usually go hand in hand, but I guess we are urged to keep trusting in God's ability to deliver us from our times of trouble.
