- <But they who wait for YHVH shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.>
- <I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of YHVH in the land of the living! Wait for YHVH; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for YHVH!>
- <Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of YHVH. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of YHVH is at hand. >
- <Therefore YHVH waits to be gracious to you, and therefore He exalts Himself to show mercy to you. For YHVH is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for Him.>
That last one packs some love doesn’t it? We are waiting on a God who reveals His nature to us, His goodness to us, His kindness, His ability to confound the flesh, and He is far beyond the understanding of man, even though He quietly lives just inside and all around. He is waiting to bring His children home to Him! He is waiting to be gracious to us? Really? What is He waiting for? That is a different thought, eh? His mercy is extended, most all are too familiar with that, but His grace? How many of His people know His grace beyond the misguided idea that grace is just another word for mercy? How many of His people is He waiting to be gracious to, and if He is waiting to be gracious, what good part are they basking in while graciousness is not there? What can a man do that would cause YHVH to be gracious towards Him? Do not be misguided, YHVH is actively being gracious, right now, towards many of His people.
His children should cast a constant indemnified eye on their own actions, the way a mother watches her children. This, in order that God’s grace can find a home in them. Doing the things that are right and true, through experience and faith in the word, that will bring them closer to Him. We believers naturally want to fellowship, pray, and act rightly in His eyes.
Note the instructions are “doing” instructions, and not “do not do” instructions. If you are waiting on YHVH, dont be in neutral, coming from reverse. Be in first gear, at the very least. Instead of trying to not do, actively do what is just. One who is moving forward on purpose has a much lesser chance at being made to go backwards as one who is in neutral (not doing mentality). Wait on YHVH, even when times become hard while you are doing a new good thing. Keep up the good work, and wait as a farmer who waits for the former and latter rains.
<But they who wait for YHVH shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.> Do not faint, saints, because the enemy will while you are on what you might believe is 7 breaths past your last.
