Waiting is an old and helpful practice

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.

Get hope!
