“Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield.” Psalm 33:20. The Psalmist grew weary as he waited. He felt abandoned, as if his enemies were gaining the upper hand. When we’re waiting for God to resolve a difficult situation or to answer often repeated prayers, it’s easy to get discouraged. The Psalmist had a remedy. He focused on all that he knew of God’s love, reminding himself of past blessings and deliberately praising God, who would not forget him. We can do that too! God is worth waiting for; His timing is always best.
