The Hebrew Old Testament contains twelve words that have been translated “wait” in English. Some of these words imply “serve’ (as in “waiting on tables.”) This series will explore six of the words that mean wait as in “be still, anticipate, etc.” that are also used to describe our relationship with God.
Sometimes we have to learn to wait. We want resolution right now, but either it is impossible, or if we force things we can do more harm than good. Each of these words offers insight into how we wait under different circumstances.
