In the Psalter we find helpful examples of waiting. In the beginning of Psalm 130 we hear a cry: “Out of the depths…”. Then we read…
“I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.” (Psalm 130:5-6 ESV)
The writer puts his hope in God because he knows the promises of God and the record of God’s faithfulness.
This Advent season is a good time to renew our discipline of soaking in, marinating in (Thx for the metaphor KOS) the word of God.
