Let’s have a little fun in the LXX. I have been especially interested lately in what it means to wait on the Lord. Sometimes I call out to him, “Show me where I am going.” His answer is always, “Do you know where to take the next step?” “Yes,“ I respond. “Good, then that is all you need to know,” he answers.
Waiting is not passive. It is a very active experience, often harder than “doing” something. It involves work and trust.
Psalm 27:14 reads, ὑπόμεινον τὸν κύριον· ἀνδρίζου, καὶ κραταιούσθω ἡ καρδία σου, καὶ ὑπόμεινον τὸν κύριον.
