Psalm 40:1-5 I waited patiently for the Lord, and He turned to me, and heard my cry. 2 He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet on a rock, and established my steps. 3 He has put a new song in my mouth, even praise to our God; many will see it, and fear, and will trust in the Lord.
4 Blessed is the man who places trust in the Lord, but does not turn toward the proud, nor those falling away to falsehood. 5 O Lord my God, You have done many wonderful works, and Your thoughts toward us cannot be compared; if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
David’s testimony in this text should encourage us in knowing that “waiting” on God will produce results.
This Psalm is a song of joyful proclamation of deliverance by God on David’s behalf from some type of trouble he had been experiencing.
Waiting on God proves to be fruitful for David and it can be for us too if we, like David, pray, trust and believe without wavering in our faith, wait with patience, perseverance, expectation and hope in knowing that if we belong to God, He will come through for us too.
Yes, the wait is worth it!
Let’s listen to how David benefited from patiently waiting on God. (1) God bent over and turned His ear to hear what David was saying and He heard David’s cry; (2) God delivered him from the crisis he was in at the time and set him in a much better and more secure place (upon a rock) away from the danger of his enemy; (3) God put a new song in his mouth which brought forth voluntary praise to God from his mouth; (4) The deliverance and the praise that came from David’s prayer to God was an effective testimony to others.
David closes his testimony of God’s mighty act of deliverance on his behalf with the words of vs# 4-5 Blessed is that man who makes the LORD his trust: 5-O Lord my God, You have done many wonderful works, and Your thoughts toward us cannot be compared; if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
In David’s testimony of God deliverance, as so with those that saw David’s deliverance, we too should be inspired to reverence and trust God even more in knowing that if He did it for David, He is the same God who changes not, therefore, God who is able to do any and ALL things can do the same for us if we too patiently wait on Him.
Are you in a pit? Cry out to the Lord for He promises to hear and answer you as He did with David.
Tired of waiting on God? The true blessing is only produced from the pain and the wait!
Yes, your wait by faith WILL be worthy it when you have come through what you are going through.
Today is the day to trust God through the process by faith and He WILL incline His ears to your cry too.
Thank You Lord for the “WAIT” was worthy It!
