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!
