“I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.”
God’s promises are true. He tells us He is coming and because He says it, we can believe it. So, we wait. We wait patiently, albeit diligently, redeeming the time. We wait the way a watchman waits for the dawn. He knows it will come, but he is not sure of the exact timing. He looks around at the signs, the tiniest flicker of light over the horizon, the colors of the sky. And then suddenly the darkness gives way to the light. Nothing can stop it. The dawn is certain; there is no question in our minds of its coming. But the Lord’s coming is even more certain.
One of these days the sky will break open and we will be with Him in an instant. For today our whole being waits. For today we look for the signs. For today we walk by a faith that is even more certain than the rising sun.
Lord, today we wait. Tomorrow our hope and faith may be sight. Thank You.
