January 24: Patience


Scripture Lesson: Psalm 40:1-4


On this date in 1937, Wee Willie Keeler was elected to the Hall of Fame. Keeler was known as a very patient hitter and in his 19-year career, he batted .341 with 2,932 hits. Keeler said, “I keep my eyes clear and hit ’em where they ain’t. Learn what pitch you can hit good and wait for that pitch.”


King David reminds us in Psalm 40 that if we wait patiently for the Lord, God hears us and responds to our needs! David tells of God lifting him out of the pit, setting his feet on a rock, and putting a new song of praise in his mouth. He declares that, because of his example, many will see and put their trust in God. We are blessed when we put our trust in God. It all comes together when we wait for God. Waiting takes trusting! Sometimes we want to act and make things happen when it is best to wait upon the Lord. Today let us all take the opportunity to WAIT for the Lord, trusting Him to be there for us and to meet our needs.

  1. Describe a time that you were not patient and did not wait for the Lord. How did that turn out?

  2. Describe a time when you waited on God to act, and He met your needs.

  3. Patience comes from trusting. Do you agree or disagree? Why?

The group U2 has a great song based on this Psalm entitled “40.” Why not take a few minutes to find it online and listen gratefully for God’s care for us when we trust and wait on Him?
