7 And now, Lord ['Adonay], what wait [qavah] I for? my hope [towcheleth] is in thee. KJV-Interlinear
7 “And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you. ESV
The psalmist has been filled with pressures of anxiety and depression, and unable to remain quiet any longer. He has seen himself as worthless, living in a hopeless world, amounting to nothing more than a shadow in his existence.
And now, he complains, what do I wait for?
He is beginning his turning to God realizing that waiting on the world, there is nothing in the world to bring about security or contentment or anything else for that matter. And so the question, implied, where does one find cheerful or comforting views in life?
When contemplating the world in ones pursuits, the course of things in life are nothing more than a shadow, and a mysterious and empty pursuit of the things in life, that are temporary, and seemingly have no permanent purpose.
And so the psalmist realizes that hope is not in the world, but hope lies within God. And, one’s access to God is by means of the written word. And in attaining access one has to learn the written word, namely by means of receiving instruction in a daily Bible study.
And only then, when a person wakes up, and knuckles down, and dedicates himself to the pursuit of learning about God and truth, through a daily study, will the eyes be opened, and the real hope, recognized.
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
