“Make me to know Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; for You I wait all the day long” (Psalm 25:4–5).
There are several people I have spoken with in the last few days that are finding it hard to wait on God and let Him resolve difficult issues. There were many times in David’s life where it was hard to wait for God’s timing to deal with enemies and those who opposed him. You and I have these moments. We also know that when we try to resolve problems our way, we make bad choices.
Notice that David wanted God to teach him in the waiting period; His ways, His path, His truth! As David says in Psalm 62:1; “For God alone my soul waits in silence…” There are times when we need to shut out the noise of this world and other people so we can learn and hear God speak to us, to show us His way, His path, His truth. Learning requires listening.
In order for us to do this, we must trust God to teach us how to resolve issues in a way that will give Him glory. Our comfort is not the first priority. What is most important in waiting is having the assurance that we learn the will of God and then receive grace and strength to do it.
If you are in this place of waiting, do not fret; do not become anxious, do not be in a hurry. Our God is never late for those who truly trust and depend on Him.
