I love to study the Bible! Reading commentaries and learning the meaning of Greek and Hebrew words only makes my study richer. Things I’ve read 100 times come alive with fresh meaning.
But the LORD, the God of hosts, the LORD is His name. Therefore turn to God; keep mercy and justice, and wait for God continually. Hosea 12:6-7 (Hebrew to English)
All the words in this verse have offered wonderful rabbit-trails, but the wait for God in particular grabbed my heart. Qavah means literally –people waiting expectantly for the LORD of angel armies to intervene on their behalf! We are to believe He will.
Total confidence that God will intervene comes from making sure I turn to Him and keep mercy and justice at the top of my list. In other words: do life the way God would want it done… completely loving.
- Qavah on God for whatever seems unjust or unmerciful in the world today.
- Qavah for Him to act on our behalf as I turn to Him with hope.
- Qavah while I keep on being merciful and just to those around me.
The LORD of heaven and earth has a miriad of angels that serve Him, and He will intervene for me …at just the right moment. If I will only – qavah ❤️
