Isaiah 30:18 AMP … And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]

Rise up O LORD to show compassion on me
You are my help
Do not hide Your face from me
You are my deliverer, my vindication!
-Ps27:9

I am oppressed and needy
Come quickly!
-Ps40:17
I long for Your unbroken companionship LORD!
O to walk in the light of Your face!

Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O LORD, in the light of Your countenance.-Ps89:15

My heart says of You, “Seek His face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek. -Ps27:8

Isaiah 40:31 AMP … But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

Isaiah 64:4 AMP … For from of old no one has heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides You, Who works and shows Himself active on behalf of him who [earnestly] waits for Him.

Trust in the Lord to equip you and strengthen you to do what He has called you to do
AND wait upon Him to do the rest
Wait for Him to do what only He can do!

Jeremiah 32:17 AMP … Alas, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! There is nothing too hard or too wonderful for You—

Isaiah 30:18 AMP … And therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up{rises up}, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!

Longing Hearts

August 12, 2011

The Lord longs to be gracious to you
Therefore, He rises up in compassion
That He may have mercy on you and
Show His loving-kindness to you.

Because of this you are not consumed
His tender compassions fail not
The steadfast love of the LORD Jesus Christ
Never comes to an end!
New every morning
Great is His faithfulness!

The LORD is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait[expect, long for] for Him in faith!
