“The eyes of all look to you and you give them their food in due season.” Psalm 145:15 (NRSV)
Waiting upon God is mostly what He calls us to do. In fact, not just mankind, but the entire creation is ruled by the one unalterable law of waiting upon God (Romans 8:19). However, what the universe and the animal creation does unconsciously, God’s people are to do voluntarily. Waiting upon God means we receive from Him what He alone can give, what He alone delights to give.
Waiting upon God is the only true faith. In waiting, we depend upon Him entirely. In waiting we hope to see the goodness of the Lord displayed in our life. In waiting upon Him, we will find rest and joy, strength and peace and the supply of every need.
Waiting is a little different from praying though. In prayer, the focus is on needs and petitions. We must pray and then we wait for His supply. Our prayers are intermingled with quietness as we remember who God is, how near He is, and how He will certainly help us. In our praying let there be times of reverent silence, stillness of the soul and yielding ourselves fully to Him.
In the waiting, God can overshadow us with His gentle, loving presence. His Spirit will remind us that there is nothing too difficult for Him and His love will keep us each day. Waiting on God gives Him time to come to us in His divine power, for this is what He longs to do.
Let’s continue waiting upon our dear Lord so that we might receive His grace and mercy in our times of need.
