Dawn Is Coming
From Psalm 130
Hope from Today’s Reading:
"I wait for the Lord to help me, and I trust his word. I wait for the Lord to help me more than night watchmen wait for the dawn." (Psalm 130:5-6 NCV)
Night watchmen wait for the dawn because that means their shift is over; they can finally go to bed. You know that feeling—checking your watch, counting down minutes, oh-so-ready to go home.
The thing is, night watchmen know the dawn is coming. They never wonder, Hmm, will the dawn come today? I sure hope so. I'd love to go home soon. They know it's coming; it's just a matter of when.
Do you know the Lord will help you? Are you confident He will come through—that it's just a matter of when? Trust His word. Trust His promises. He makes sure of it: not one of His words will fall to the ground (1 Samuel 3:19).
