“Wait on the LORD: Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” Psalm‬ ‭27:14‬ ‭KJV‬‬. In this passage the psalmist is encouraging himself to be patient, to hold steady even as enemies rise against him. He has experienced the lies and accusations of false witnesses. He has come through troubled times when his enemies have risen up in power. But through it all, he is looking to the Lord and holding on, because he knows God will not fail him. He takes courage in his soul, because he believes that God will move in these situations and show Himself strong in behalf of those who trust Him. He is sure that for all of his own weakness, God will strengthen his heart in exactly the way that he needs! And so, he repeats these words to himself, “Wait on the Lord”. May God help us today, to know in all the difficulties we face that our God will come to our rescue! Let us have this great confidence in God like David did, which encourages our soul, that this is not about my strength nor my ability to fight, this battle is the Lord’s! And He will come to strengthen my heart in the way that I need.
