Waiting For God Trustingly

I’m not sure if trustingly is even a word, but it is today!!  This one goes hand in hand with expectancy and patience.  Waiting trustingly implies that you expect (trust) that there will be an answer, and you wait for it patiently.  I don’t think I can make it more simple than that.  Especially since prayer–real prayer–involves a certain level of trust.  I would imagine that if you didn’t trust God (like before we got saved) then you wouldn’t pray at all.  Trust also implies a level of loyalty that will get results.  Trust God while you wait.

Lamentations 3:24 (CEV)

Deep in my heart I say,

“The LORD is all I need;

I can depend on him!

22-24 (MSG)

God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out,
his merciful love couldn’t have dried up.
They’re created new every morning.
How great your faithfulness!
I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over).
He’s all I’ve got left.

Micah 7:7 (CEV)

But I trust the LORD Godto save me,

and I will wait for him

to answer my prayer.

(MSG)

But me, I’m not giving up.
I’m sticking around to see what God will do.
I’m waiting for God to make things right.
I’m counting on God to listen to me.
