Psalm 40:1 “I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and He turned to me and heard my cry.”
Waiting patiently is an attitude of the heart. It refers to keeping your heart open to hearing God speak as well as keeping your eyes open to watch Him move. When our hearts are attuned to His heart, we become aware of how important we are to Him, that when we cry, He hears us. …He turns to you and wipes away your tears and says, fear not, I am here.
