Wait Quietly

Sis. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran
16 Dec
Are you crying, “Lord, how long should I be waiting? Will I not have a dawn? Please help me.”  I assure you that you will see the bright sunshine in your life. Bible says, “It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord” (Lamentations 3:26). David said, “My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning” (Psalm 130:6).  Yes, this is how David was waiting in the presence of the Lord. Darkness will not prolong in your life.  Today, as you read this portion, God would enable you to say, “The Lord heard my voice. He heard my cry. He fulfilled my heart’s desire.” Rejoice, for your waiting has come to an end.
A family raised a dog with great love. It was cherished as one among the family. Suddenly the head of that family died. Every one cried and lamented. No one paid attention to that dog. When they came back home after burying the body, the dog was missing.  They searched everywhere. One Sunday, that family went to the graveyard after attending church service.  They were shocked to see the dog sitting on the grave of the deceased person.  Every one hugged it and cried, “We did not bring this dog here. How did it know that its master is here?”  After a while, when they were prepared to leave, the dog did not go with them. It stayed in the cemetery. Therefore, they told the person in charge of the cemetery, “The dog does not seem to come home with us. Let it be here. We will give you money. You can feed it and take care of it.”  The dog stayed in that cemetery itself. The securities of this cemetery say, “This dog walks around the cemetery again and again. Exactly at 6 pm it will come and sit on the top of the grave and throughout the night it stays there.”  Yes, this is a true incident, which took place in Argentina.
This dog had a hope that its master would come back one day.  It waited eagerly out of love.  Why can’t you too wait with hope at the feet of your living Saviour?  He will always give good gifts at the perfect time.  Until then, surrender to Him so that He will mould and transform you to receive His gifts.  Beloved, waiting is never tiresome when there is love.  The Lord has kept blessings beyond your imagination.  Word of God says, “Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31). May the promise, Wait for the Lord and keep his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land” (Psalm 37:34) come true in your life.
Dear Lord,

I am truly tired of waiting without seeing any sign of breakthrough.  I trust in Your goodness.  You are always faithful.  Give me patience to wait for Your promises to come to pass.  Until then, enable to focus on Your power, beauty and grace.  Strengthen me and shape me to receive Your blessings.  In Jesus’ name I pray,
