they would not wait

Psalm 106:13-15 (JDV)

Psalm 106:13 They quickly forgot what he has done and would not wait for his counsel.
Psalm 106:14 They were seized with craving in the wilderness and tested God in the open country.
Psalm 106:15 He gave them what they asked for, but sent emaciation to their throats.

There is a sinful prayer. It is the prayer that presumes what I need and asks God for it, without waiting for his counsel. That was the sin that the Israelites sinned in the wilderness. Even though God gave them what they asked for, it led to disaster.

LORD, we will wait on you. Tell us what we really need, and give us patient endurance until the time is right for you to give it.
