Psalm 40:1-2, 5-8:

Psalm 40:1-2 , 5 -8 Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will

PowerPoint Presentation:

A Psalm of David 1 I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. 2 He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. 5 You have multiplied, O Lord my God, your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you! Were I to proclaim and tell of them, they would be more than can be numbered. 6 Sacrifice and offering you do not desire; but you have given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering you have not required.

7 Then I said, “Behold, I come; in the roll of the book it is written of me; 8 I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.” The Holy Bible : Revised Standard Version Second Catholic edition (2006), with the ecclesiastical approval of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Thomas Nelson Publishing for Ignatius Press.

Practicing patience is hard work but it paid big dividends for King David. God has His own timetable and we must believe that our patience and prayers will be richly rewarded when the time is right. As Jesus pointed out in Luke 11:9 “ I tell you, Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” David’s patience and his confidence in God brought him out of his despair. He focused on the only thing that is really important, God. David’s life certainly wasn’t perfect but he continued to walk with and strengthened his faith in God as he journeyed through life. Ask yourself this question, when didn’t having patience and doing the Lord’s will benefit me?

The Christian Herald once carried an article about a senior executive of one of the largest banks in New York City. He told how he had risen to a place of prominence and influence. At first he served as an office boy. Then one day the president of the company called him aside and said, “I want you to come into my office and be with me each day.” The young man replied, “But what could I do to help you, sir? I don’t know anything about finances.” “Never mind that! You will learn what I want to teach you a lot faster if you just stay by my side and keep your eyes and ears open!” “That was the most significant experience of my life,” said the now-famous banker. “Being with that wise man made me just like him.

I began to do things the way he did, and that accounts for what I am today.” (Our Daily Bread). If we are willing to visit with the Lord everyday in prayer won’t we have the same opportunity to learn and imitate his ways thus allowing us to live in harmony with those around us? This would certainly be a rich reward for our patience, prayer and devotion.
