Daily Devotional: October 18, 2023 – Psalm 27:14

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. – Psalm 27:14

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Psalm 27:14 guides us today, saying, “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!” Life can often feel like a heavy bag we carry, filled with work, bills, and little curveballs that stress us out. Sometimes, the bag feels extra heavy, and we feel lost.

But here’s what Psalm 27:14 wants us to know – “Wait.” Picture this: you’re a gardener, and you’ve just planted seeds. Do you dig them up every day expecting them to have grown into plants overnight? No, right? You wait. That’s what God wants us, too, to wait with hope and patience.

The verse also tells us to “be strong, and let your heart take courage.” It’s like you’re on a tough hike – short of breath, legs aching but you don’t stop. You keep going, knowing the view on top is going to be worth it. So don’t quit!

Our faith requires patience and courage. Remember, God is our ever-supportive friend. He’s with us in every step, even during challenging times. He is truly worth our wait. Let’s show Him our courage and patience.

My Prayer

Dear God, like a seed waiting to sprout, I am waiting for Your guidance. Life is tough some days, but I know that there’s a beautiful view up ahead. Please, give me the patience to wait and the courage to stay strong. Help me to trust in Your plan, even when I can’t see where it’s going.

You’re my friend on this journey, and I know the wait is worth it. So here I am, trusting in Your timing, knowing that You are always right, always fair. Strengthen me, Lord. Amen.
