Psalm 33:20-21 ” We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. “

This theme is echoed in Psalm 27:14 when it says, “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” But let’s just admit it, waiting is hard…and waiting in the middle of sickness, devastation, or loss is very difficult to do. And now it tells us here we are to wait in confidence and hopeful expectation while our whole world is falling down around us…how!? Well, as we read here, it all starts with praise. We praise God for what He’s done in the past, how faithful He’s been in our life, and how He will never leave nor forsake us. We praise Him for all the blessings in our life and we remember all the times He has rescued, restored, healed, and encouraged us. And when we praise God like this, it leads us closer to Him… and we then can fully and with confidence place our hope in Him… as we wait.
