Waiting on God is a powerful thing to do. It looks like private prayer, worship, following God’s plan for our life and keeping a hope in us that you will be meeting with Him, and enjoying His presence. It is in everything we do – waiting for the Messiah, our salvation by Him – waiting for Him – before He comes until He comes.
How do we do this?
The Hebrew translation helps us out a bit here. Hosea 12:6 is actually Hosea 12:7 in the Jewish Bible and the literal translation goes like this —
And you shall return by your God: keep loving-kindness and justice, and hope to your God always.
So what are we really waiting for?
If we reflect on our lives and on God – maybe its a good time to start thinking how we can commit ourselves to Him even more so. While our answers could be the traditional – redemption of our bodies or waiting for His return or the driving away of our enemies – maybe we are waiting for the hope of righteousness to consume us and make us new. Let’s expect God to bring us back into that amazing relationship that He has always wanted to have with us.
But as for you, return to your God,
hold fast to love and justice,
and wait continually for your God. – Hosea 12:6
