I want you all to lie in wait … Stay close, and stay alert.
Oh, if only they had waited one more day!
But, I too can be just like the Israelites. I have been known to complain when God does not show up in my timing—in my plans. You’d think I’d learn after all these years that when God asks us to wait on Him and His perfect timing that all would be good. But NO! On day 39, (more like day two or day three) I take things into my own hands and lean on my own understanding.
Oh God, forgive me for thinking I know something about your timing and plans. Teach me to patiently wait just one more day, or two or three for your coming blessings! Help me to trust you completely, for you are trustworthy. Thank you God, for patiently waiting on me.
VIGILANTLY I wait for You, hoping, trusting.
