Welcome to the Waiting on God Week 1 Bible reading summary! If you haven’t picked up a reading plan yet, you are welcome to join in at any time. The plan can be printed out OR I like to screenshot it to my phone for easy access. I like to begin and end the plans on the month for easy tracking. So we started on the first and I’ll summarize the first three days we read this week. Ready?
We love for things to be “perfect.” But when God’s perfect timing isn’t the same as our own, we have a tendency to grow weary in the wait. Thank you, Lord, that in spite of our impatient foot-tapping or even heavy foot stomping, you never change and only want the best for our lives.
I so loved this passage for many reasons. Verse 13 says “I am certain that I will see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living.” There is no guessing for the psalmist. He knows that God is good and he will show his goodness. The problem is not that God is not working. The problem is that we can’t see his work. Jesus, reveal yourself to us today while we wait. May our hearts eagerly embrace the beauty of the wait and the brawn of the work.
When God has us in a waiting mode, we often think “What am I supposed to do while I am waiting?” The psalmist tells us what we should be doing in this passage.
While we wait, we place our hope in God’s Word! To place our hope in God’s Word, we must know the Word. And to know the Word, we need to read the Word.
I am so loving this reading plan so far! What have you been learning? I’d love to read about it today!
Have a fab Friday!
By his grace,
