    When I read this Psalm, it reminds me that I must be patient, because he will answer my wants and needs at his time ( when the time is right).

    It is good to know that these Bible verses are also comforting to others. I've loved it since I was a kid before my pastor would preach, the choir would sing "Whom Shall I fear" and my pastor would always read the first two verses of this chapter. These words give me the strength and courage not just for another day, but to fight and win in this life...God is good...
