Psalm 130- A Story of Patience and Hope

Psalm 130 speaks two messages loud and clear, PATIENCE and HOPE. I don’t know about you, but I have had plenty of times where I was unsure and felt like there was nothing I could do but WAIT and see. But here is the good news, we are not waiting on ourselves, a friend or some politician to come in. We are waiting on a mighty, powerful and all-knowing God. This reminder should help you to wait in peace.
While we wait, I encourage you to wait with hope and expectancy. The Lord will come in with his lovingkindess and redemptive power to blow our socks off. In the waiting period we may become impatient, and try to find a solution on our own…remember Sara and Hagar?? This is not what our God wants us to do, He wants us to wait in faith with expectancy that He will deliver. Just take a second to remember your past victories, the points of redemption from the pits that were so deep they left you in despair and tears. The part I love the most about Psalm 130 is the promise at the end, “And He WILL redeem Israel from all his iniquities”. Beloved sister, there is no sin, no past mistake that the Lord isn’t willing to wash away. So here is the hope you can rejoice in today. Our God is a God full or mercy and grace…He WILL redeem!
