Psalm 39 - What do I wait for?

Outline

v1-3
A time to keep silence and a time to speak
v4-6
The brevity and vanity of human life
v7
Hope in the Lord
v8-10

v11-13

Key
v7

And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope [is] in thee.

What things do we wait for, and hope for? That's a good question to ask ourselves. The things of this human life are temporary, and at best, vanity. We need to make sure that our hope is in the Lord.

Application

I'll ask myself what my hope is in, to make sure that the Lord is what I'm waiting for.
