08.26.2017 – Old Testament: Psa 130.5–6

To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 128–131 on August 26, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

How much do we wait for the Lord? How would you picture it? The psalmist pictured it this way,

I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,
And in His word I do hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
More than those who watch for the morning—
Yes, more than those who watch for the morning.
(Psalm 130.5–6) 

When you suffer during the night or fear something in the darkness, you hope for the day with all that is within you. However, the waiting and hoping of the psalmist for the Lord even surpassed the waiting and hoping of those who waited for the morning, for he knew that without the Lord, hope does not exist, regardless of how well the rest of life goes.

Questions:

  • How strong is your desire to wait on the Lord?
  • What does He mean to you?
