I am currently and constantly waiting on Him for patience with my kids, peace in relationships, healing in bodies, and strength to do the simple tasks that my days require.
But what does it actually mean to “wait on the LORD?”
But I used to think that “waiting on the Lord” meant sitting alone in prayer and asking for strength (and of course yes this is a necessary part of my walk with Christ!), but after studying this verse I think it means a lot more.
This word “wait” in its original Hebrew translation in this context means to collect, bind together, or expect.
Think about a rope being stretched, and how much stronger a cord of 2 or 3 strands twisted together (Ecclesiastes 4:12) is compared to a single strand!
What could it look like for us to collect together with other believers, bind (twist) our lives together with each other, and expectantly put our hope in the Lord?
