“My soul silently waits for God; From Him comes my salvation…. He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved…. Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.” Psalm 62:1, 2, 8
The more patient, believing, and single-eyed we are, the sooner we shall see the salvation and victory of the Lord. Double-minded souls have the greatest struggle, and the slothful must tarry the longer.
Sometimes, it is true, though we are faithful — yet we must cry out, “O Lord, how long?” (Psalm 6:3). But nevertheless, He always hears and delivers us, though we do not see and feel it directly — but seem to suffer continually.
In Heaven, we shall certainly see it and reap the blessed fruits of all our afflictions and prayers. But even when the Lord delays to deliver, He supports us — secretly communicating strength, suggesting precious promises, and giving us inward composure. We may well wait for God now, who waited for us so long. And we may well wait upon God, seeing He has appended a blessing to waiting. He who waits longest often receives most and is filled with gratitude and praise. Those who wait on men will be disappointed — but those that wait on the Lord shall be satisfied.
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)
