Waiting on God

“Make me know Thy ways, O Lord;
Teach my Thy paths.
Lead me in Thy truth and teach me,
For Thou art the God of my salvation;
For Thee I wait all the day.”—Psalm 25:4-5

King David's plea shows how desperately needful he was of knowing more about God and seeking His will. It is as if without God's direction, he, already the most powerful man in Israel, couldn't do much else. David was expectant, looking forward to hearing God's words and decrees, knowing fully well that it is “Thy truth.”

His waiting for God “all the day” reveals his intimate, personal relationship with his Savior. I'm certain David had a lot going on in his mind, yet he always found time to rest in knowing that in waiting for God there is hope. God had never failed him.
