“I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait, and in His word do I hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than the watchmen for the morning” (Psalm 130:5-6).
Spiraling downward, flailing, grasping, bewildered, fearful, anxious…these are but a sampling of the emotions felt in times of unexpected adversity and hardship. While the masses seek to find answers and, thus, their security in such things as conspiracy theories, political corruption (as if that were something new), and fraudulent pandemics as a means of undermining civil liberties, God’s people hold forth a long history of having found their hope in one thing alone—waiting upon the Lord. In the very soul of our waiting is hope. None of the tragic and life-altering events of human history have ever caught the sovereignty of God unaware. Just wait!
