Please Wait...

How Long, O Lord?

In our aggressive, fast-paced society, we are consistently pressured to take action and control situations.  It’s the  American way.  When I face challenges in life, this pressure will frequently spill over into my relationship with God.  Anxiety heightens.  Then the question bubbles up from my soul, “How long, O Lord?”  These times are deeply frustrating as we feel torn between what we can do and what God will do.

Throughout the Psalms, we hear the writers encourage us, “Wait on the Lord.”  This is not a command for us to quit living life, but rather a deep encouragement and reminder that our God is active in this world and our lives. He is absolutely worthy of our trust.  As we continue to live faithfully, we can rest in our hardships remembering that God will take care of us.
