Waiting for The Morning


“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word, I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.”

— ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭130‬:‭5‬-‭6‬‬ ESV


Waiting is something we are all accustomed to doing. We stand in lines for trains, ramen, or even rides at Disneyland. Sometimes, our waiting is for a special day, and we count down until the day finally arrives. We await answers or responses. Our lives are always about waiting. The Psalmist says his soul waits and hopes in the word of God. This Psalm is known as a Psalm of penitence. The psalmist comes to God, praying for his inequities to be forgiven, and his hope is in God’s Word, that His promises will be fulfilled. And like the sureness that morning will come, the psalmist awaits when God’s answer be. Do we have that kind of faith in God’s Word?


We need to cultivate trust in God’s Word through praying through His Scripture and develop faith in God’s promises, not if they will come, but when they will come. It will take us being in His Word to allow it to speak to us. If we are not spending time in His Word, we are missing what He wants us to hear.


Heavenly Father, help us to wait patiently and trust in Your Word. May we find comfort and hope in Your promises, knowing that You are faithful and true. Help us to spend time in Your Word, listening and allowing it to guide our lives. Strengthen our faith and deepen our relationship with You. In Jesus’ name, amen.



“私の魂は主を待ち望み、その言葉に望みを託す。” “私の魂は、朝を待つ番人以上に、主を待ち望む。”

– 詩篇130:5-6 ESV
