Wrapped In His Heart

Guide me in Your truth and teach me,

For You are the God of my salvation;

For You (and only You) I wait (expectantly) all the day long.

Psalm 25:5 Amplified Bible

The Passion Bible translation has this footnote that knocked my socks off:

“The Hebrew word most commonly translated as “wait”, qavah, also means “to be tied together by twisting, to wrap tightly, to entwine”. This is a beautiful concept of waiting on God, not as something passive, but entwining our hearts with him and his purposes.”

Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance says “a primitive root; to bind together (perhaps by twisting)”.

So when I read this verse in the Passion Bible and it gave me the illustrative words,

“I have wrapped my heart into Yours”,

I was just swept away by the visual image these words presented.

Oh my, what better place to be but wrapped together into God’s heart?

THIS. This is what I desire. I want to be wrapped up in God’s heart. Especially when I am waiting for answers. To feel as He does. To love as He does. To know that I am in His heart, being held, as He prepares His answer. And to “know in my knower” how very much I am loved by Him.

How about you? Do these words resonate with you? Please do let me know!

And as always, I’m sending you love and big hugs!
