The Hebrew word "qavah"is a verb (i.e. ACTION word as several of my favorite Elementary teachers used to remind me) which means, "To wait, look for, hope, expect", "To Collect; Bind Together", "Wait for (Probably, originally twist, stretch, then of tension of enduring, waiting," "cord," "be strong, strength, also strand of rope, and "endure, remain, await, threads, spider's threads, web".(See http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H6960&t=KJV and http://biblesuite.com/hebrew/6960.htm).
Do you see it? The word wait, as used in this passage of scripture, is not a passive or non-action type of word. It is not only ACTIVE, but it is a "binding, or twisting...like a rope"...with SOMETHING or SOMEONE. That SOMEONE is the FATHER, SON and HOLY SPIRIT, and when we WAIT, or intertwine ourselves with HIM, we will "mount up with wings like eagles...we will run and not be weary...we WILL walk and NOT faint..." It is ALL about RELATIONSHIP with HIM as a CORD, or STRAND of THREE is NOT easily broken.
So TODAY, as the devil and world attemps to throw EVERYTHING it can against you, WAIT on the LORD and He WILL renew your strength...for if HE be FOR us...who can possibly be against us? For what may be impossible for man, IS truly POSSIBLE with OUR God...
