20 Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
22 Let your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, in proportion to our waiting and hoping on you.1
14 Wait, and hope for, and expect the LORD! Be of good courage and let your heart be confident! Wait, I say, on the LORD!
24 Be of good courage and he shall strengthen your heart, all you who wait for, hope for, and expect the LORD.
25 The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him. [To wait on God is to seek. To wait on God is to persistently sit in humble silence, listen for his voice and words, watch for his revelations, hear his commands, and then obey Him; only those who heed and obey Him receive eternal salvation. Heb 5:9. He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Heb 11:6.]
5 I wait for the LORD; my soul waits, and I hope in his word [that I will hear].
15 For in you, O LORD, do I hope and wait. You will respond, O Lord my God.
|Psalms 39:7 |
7 And now, Lord, what do I wait for? You are my only hope. [From the Word of the Lord within: "You must wait on the Lord to receive salvation. Wait for, hope for, the Lord. Let Your mercy be in proportion to our waiting and hoping on You. If we go to him, and we wait on him, he comes. We need to get quiet and ready to listen. In humble silence we sit and wait. Patiently we wait in humble silence. Patiently and assiduously we wait. As we wait, we hope. We go to him, and he rains help on us; well does this exercise of God purify those who do. Listen, heed, and obey — the word is near thee."]
