Bible Reading: Psalm 37:5-9
Wednesday, October 7, 2015
Do you like to wait? Probably not. Does anyone like to wait? I don’t think so. We may think like this: “I want it all, and I want it now!” We pray and ask God for help, but we don’t want to wait for His answer.
Often I ask for God to help me. Then I become angry if He doesn’t answer my prayer right away. It is also easy to become jealous of non-Christians who seem to have everything they want in life.
Our Bible Reading today reminds us not to worry about other people. We should trust “in the Lord and wait quietly for his help” (verse 7a). Sometimes it is hard to wait for an answer, but we need to remember that God knows what is best for us.
Trust God in everything today. — LB*
“Depend on the Lord. Trust in him, and he will help you.” Psalm 37:5
PRAYER: God, help me to wait for Your answers to my prayers. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
