Mid Week Devotional With Chris Chase
"Wait for the Lord; be strong and let your heart take courage; yes, wait for the Lord." (Psalm 27:14) The Hebrew verb for the word "wait" means "to twist, stretch." The noun in the Hebrew means "line, cord, thread." This brings a word-picture to mind: It is a verb describing the making of a strong, powerful rope or cord by twisting and weaving ourselves so tightly around the Lord that our weaknesses and frail characteristics are replaced by His power and unparalleled strength. It literally describes the truth of what is called the "exchanged life." As you and I wait on God, our weakness is exchanged for His strength. And remember, strength and courage are developed during a trial, not after it's over!
