Wait and Hope for and Expect the Lord

Psalm 27:14

Psalm 27:14  Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage,and He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!

Psalm 18:6    In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry came before Him, even to His ears.

Psalm 27

The Lord is my Light and my Salvation—whom shall I fear or dread?   The Lord is the Refuge and Stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked, even my enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, [even then] in this will I be confident.

One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and [insistently] require:   that I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty [the sweet attractiveness and the delightful loveliness] of the Lord and to meditate, consider, and inquire in His temple.

For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock.

And now shall my head be lifted up above my enemies round about me; in His tent I will offer sacrifices and shouting of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.

Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud; have mercy and be gracious to me and answer me!

You have said, Seek My face [inquire for and require My presence as your vital need].    My heart says to You, Your face (Your presence), Lord, will I seek, inquire for, and require [of necessity and on the authority of Your Word].

Hide not Your face from me; turn not Your servant away in anger, You Who have been my help! Cast me not off, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation!

Although my father and my mother have forsaken me, yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child].

Teach me Your way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain and even path because of my enemies [those who lie in wait for me].

Give me not up to the will of my adversaries, for false witnesses have risen up against me; they breathe out cruelty and violence.

[What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living!

Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord.

Psalm 21
The king [David] shall joy in Your strength, O Lord; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!

You have given him his heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of his lips.

For You send blessings of good things to meet him; You set a crown of pure gold on his head.  He asked life of You, and You gave it to him—long life forever and evermore.

His glory is great because of Your aid; splendor and majesty You bestow upon him.    For You make him to be blessed and a blessing forever; You make him exceedingly glad with the joy of Your presence.

For the king trusts, relies on, and is confident in the Lord, and through the mercy and steadfast love of the Most High he will never be moved.

Your hand shall find all Your enemies; Your right hand shall find all those who hate You.    You will make them as if in a blazing oven in the time of Your anger; the Lord will swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire will utterly consume them.    Their offspring You will destroy from the earth, and their sons from among the children of men.    For they planned evil against You; they conceived a mischievous plot which they are not able to perform.    For You will make them turn their backs; You will aim Your bow [of divine justice] at their faces.

Be exalted, Lord, in Your strength; we will sing and praise Your power.
