David hungers and thirsts for instruction and petitions God for help as evidenced in Psalm 25:4, 5. “Make me know thy ways, O Lord; teach me 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.”
To wait upon God is to hope in God alone, to look for Him, to be gathered to Him. Furthermore, hope is defined as having a joyful expectation of good.
For those who are committed to God through Jesus Christ, there should be a daily and earnest awareness that God is intimately acquainted with our spiritual, mental and physical needs. Believers are to remain steadfastly devoted to God whether the day is long, dark, or even stormy. They are to be faithful even if they sail on turbulent seas, and not faint if God’s promises are delayed. Dependency and hope upon God must be every day, all day long.
Hosea, whose name means salvation, cries out to God’s people and declares, “Therefore return to your God, observe kindness and justice and wait for your God continually.” (Hosea 12:6)
Remember, God is not pleased with a part-time relationship. (See Revelation 3:15, 16)
