Psalm 37:7 (NLT)
7 Be still in the presence of the Lord, and wait patiently for him to act.

Through this Psalm David says we should trust in the Lord, committing everything we do to the Lord. For the Lord has our best interest at heart. There may be times we find ourselves under attack from others. There may be times we find ourselves angry and bitter about the situation we are in. There may be hard times ahead. But in this entire life God enjoys directing our steps and God delights in every detail of our life. If we can just learn to patiently wait for God before we act God will keep us on the right path and God will keep us from slipping and falling.

We live in an age of �I WANT IT NOW�. I have watched Apple introduce their newest iPhones and iPads and suddenly there is a line wrapping around the mall to get their newest gadget. I have seen those who obtain one video game while they talk about how they can�t wait for the next level to come out. There are commercials today where people who have received a long term settlement can instantly cash out. One of the company�s ads even say, �It�s my money and I want it now!� We are people who cannot wait.

Yet The Lord tells us to patiently wait on him. Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes, �Patience is better than Pride.� Pride drives us to want things now. We want to look good in the eyes of others, but instead we should be humble and appear righteous before God�s eyes. It is God we should be trying to please and not ourselves. Pray that you might patiently wait upon God and let Him guide your every step.
