5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in his word I hope;
6 my soul waits for the Lord
more than watchmen for the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning. – Psalm 130:5-6
Have you ever had a sleepless night where you found yourself staring at the clock? It seems like the minutes drag on for hours at a time. The psalmist knows that experience too, only he probably didn’t have a clock to watch the passing of time. Waiting for the morning to come can sometimes feel like an eternity, and sometimes waiting on the Lord can feel the same way. But we have this assurance. Just as surely as the sun rises, the Lord will be true to His word.
