“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope.” (Psalm 130:5)
It seems to me that there are two ways of looking at waiting for the Lord. We can either look at it as an opportunity to savor, or as an obstacle to endure. We can believe that God is present and active and at work in the midst our waiting, or we can believe that he is not. One feels really hopeful and one does not. One leads to trusting the Lord and the other leads to trusting ourselves. So which will it be?
During this season, where we are asked to embrace this posture of waiting, let’s not miss what God is up to in us and around us as a result. Let’s choose to savor Him in everyone and everything.
