“They that wait upon the Lord…shall walk and not faint.” ( Isa. 40:31; top )
Waiting on God to lead one out of a difficult situation entails waiting in quietness as He brings His light to the pathway out of the difficulty. Our role is to look in no other direction but His. Many who think they are waiting upon the Lord run to men for advice and guidance, but that is not waiting.
David was complimented by God as a man after God’s own heart, and David’s secret is revealed in at least 14 different Scriptures in the Psalms as waiting on God.
Deliverance, victory, answered prayer, total help, peace, and God’s care are foregone conclusions. The end result is inevitable. “God will never leave us nor forsake us.” ( Heb. 13:5 ) We will always be taken care of. He will even strengthen our hearts during the wait. “Wait, I say, on the Lord.” ( Psa. 27:14; top )
The problem is the difficult conditions during the time of waiting. Once we recognize that for what it is, a trial from the Lord ( “The Lord tries the righteous.” – Psa. 11:5; top ), then we are close to the end of our waiting.
Then we hear the exclamation, “I am the Resurrection and the Life” ( Jn. 11:25; top ) as we “come up out of the wilderness, leaning on our beloved.” ( Song 8:5; top )
We have heard it said, “I am hanging on by one thread!” But “underneath are the everlasting arms.” ( Dt. 33:27; top )
