Psalm 27:14 (KJV 1900)
14 Wait on the Lord: Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: Wait, I say, on the Lord.


The Hebrew phrase “wait on” could be viewed in a military context, implying “remain in place” in the face of an approaching enemy force. It means to stand firm or hold your ground.

But some look at the term like the little boy who was walking with his father and cried out “dad, wait for me.” This caused the little boy to increase his pace and even run to catch up.

It is important that we remain patient and not panic during this time. Waiting on the LORD should not cause us to be in a hurry. WAIT and see the salvation of the LORD.
