I have to think that “wait for the Lord” is mentioned twice in this one short verse, to emphasize it’s importance and perhaps because “waiting” is so difficult for us. The Psalmist reminds us both at the beginning and the end of this scripture to, trust God’s timing. Be strong! Be courageous! Be Patient! Through the power of the Holy Spirit may you do all three…today and always!
Wait for the Lord ; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord.
