Lamentations 3: 25-26 ” The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.”

Psalm 40:1 says, “I wait patently for the Lord.”  Exodus 14:14 tells us, “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”  In these verses in Lamentations the author, Jeremiah, wants to stress not only the need to wait patiently for the Lord in confident hopefulness…but to wait quietly, marked by little activity to attempt to fix things on our part. (In other words, not trying to “help God.”)  To do both simultaneously and to do them well is a real test of our trust in Him.
