Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength Isaiah 41:10 Hebrew meaning

When I am weak, He is Strong,
When I am downcast, He is my Hope
When I stumble, He lifts me up
When I fall, He is Mighty to Save
When I cling to Him,  He Strengthens me

 But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

          The word wait in this verse is actually the Hebrew word Quvah. Quvah means to bind together of strings made on a cord or bound primitive root, to bind together by twisting.  The verse still is correct in using the word wait, but the Lord explained this verse further to me in a dream I am sharing here. It probably didn’t make sense to say those who cord or bind with strings on the Lord shall renew their strength, but I can explain it further.

      I suddenly understood this verse after the dream I had- and when I read the hebrew meaning that replaced the word wait- quvah- I jumped for joy! I got it! It’s like finding ancient buried treasure. I hope you find joy in this revelation as well :)

Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
The everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the earth,
Neither faints nor is weary.
His understanding is unsearchable.
 He gives power to the weak,
And to those who have no might He increases strength.
 Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
And the young men shall utterly fall,
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint. Is 41

Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!
Ps 27:14

        I had a dream…….

            I was standing on the sand before a great ocean. As I looked out onto the waters, I could see stepping-stones on top of all the waters. I knew that I was to walk a straight path on these steps across the waters. Although there were other stepping-stones around me to the right and left, I knew the straight path before me was the best way to go and the way I was supposed to go. Above my right hand was bound cord or rope that was my help. It was always there for me to help strengthen me as I walked through my storms and trials.

stepping stones on ocean with my path prepared. Deeper and darker watersI began to walk upon the stones that were on the water.  Upon each stone were words or writing in another language that I did not understand. I knew each stone represented a trial, test, or tribulation, but I did not know the language written upon the stone. (it was written in black and looked Arabic or Hebrew)

the deeper I got, the darker and more rought and choppy the waters became.

As I started out along the shallow waters, my walk was easy. I stepped upon each stone and kept on and on as I walked further out to sea. I knew above me was a cord/rope/ bound string that came from heaven. At the end of this cord/ rope was a round attachment so that I could hold on to it in order to receive my help and strength . This rope/ help was always next to me, always close enough for me to grab on to. It seemed to follow me as I walked upon the waters.

Sometimes I held on to this help I had available, but other times I just wanted to walk on my own strength. The further I walked out to see, the more intense and trying the trials and tests became. When I continued to walk on my own strength, I could not move. I stood and struggled and struggled to get further, to get to the next stone, but it was like wrestling a wall. When I reached up and held on to my Help from Heaven, I walked as if there were no trial. I could easily walk in peace through each storm and test as if there were none. But still, I would let go at times and try to walk on my own and in my own strength. There in the middle of the ocean I stood with dark skies and raging waves fighting me. I said to God: “Why can’t I just walk on the water without these trials? It would be so much easier if I could just walk on water” with that, I lifted my arm, grabbed on to the help the Lord gave me and kept walking easily again.
The stones were a a light beigh, round, smooth and covered the waters, the stones got further and further apart as I went further.
I had walked very far out into the sea. I could not longer see land and the waters were getting dark and the waves were getting ferocious and terrifying.  The trials and tests that I walked upon became stronger and too big for me. I tried to fight them on my own, but I realized that when I tried to get through these trials on my own, I sat there longer. I couldn’t move further. I would fight and wrestle to get to my next stepping stone, but my strength was no match, and my strength was for nothing. I had to keep reminding myself to reach up and take the help that was there for me.

        When I would reach up and grab my help from heaven, I was reneewed and strengthened and could easily walk forward over m,y troubles as if it were nothing. I knew I had to keep going- for there was land ahead- even though I was in the middle of the ocean and had a long way to go. There was always hope ahead, there was alway help by my side. I wouldn’t be there forever.

      I realized that is the way it is here on earth. We wrestle and struggle with our problems, our trials, our tribulations- to no avail. It is worthless to struggle on our own. We are weak without the Lord. Reach out and grab your help from above. It’s right there for you. Put on your weapons of warfare, they are before you. Fall on your knees before Him, He waits for you.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched, Nor will the flame burn you. Isaiah 43

Wait on the Lord, And keep His way,
And He shall exalt you to inherit the land…
But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord;
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
 And the Lord shall help them and deliver them;
He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them,
Because they trust in Him. Ps 37

  Is the word Quvah a symbol of our help? I wonder if it is part of the vine that flows out of our heart that I mentioned in a previous post? I know that is how we are connected in the Spirit to the Lord- through the living water that flows from our hearts- so I wonder……. In order to receive this help to soar like an Eagle- we just need faith, trust and Hope.
It all seems so simple- yet our religions make it seem so difficult. Trust in Him, Wait on Him, Call out to Him, Cling to Him and He will carry you through.

 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Phil 4” 13

He will strengthen you

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.  But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.  To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 5 :8-11

       But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the message might be preached fully through me, and that all the Gentiles might hear. Also I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.  And the Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever. Amen! 2 Tim 4

 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,  that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,  that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—  to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,  to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Eph 3 :14-21

Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
Isaiah 41:10

Wisdom strengthens the wise More than ten rulers of the city.
Eccl 7:9

 How did Abraham Strengthen himself?
He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. 22 And therefore “it was accounted to him for righteousness” Romans 4

 It is our responsibility to strengthen the weak: ” The weak you have not strengthened, nor have you healed those who were sick, nor bound up the broken, nor brought back what was driven away, nor sought what was lost; but with force and cruelty you have ruled them.” You must shepherd your flock.

 In 2 Samuel 22, David wrote:
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
The God of my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation,
My stronghold and my refuge;
My Savior, You save me from violence.
 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised;
So shall I be saved from my enemies.
 When the waves of death surrounded me,
The floods of ungodliness made me afraid.
 The sorrows of Sheol surrounded me;
The snares of death confronted me.
 In my distress I called upon the Lord,
And cried out to my God;
He heard my voice from His temple,
And my cry entered His ears.
He sent from above, He took me,
He drew me out of many waters.
 He delivered me from my strong enemy,
From those who hated me;
For they were too strong for me.
 They confronted me in the day of my calamity,
But the Lord was my support.
 He also brought me out into a broad place;
He delivered me because He delighted in me.
“The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness;
According to the cleanness of my hands
He has recompensed me.
 For I have kept the ways of the Lord,
And have not wickedly departed from my God.
 For all His judgments were before me;
And as for His statutes, I did not depart from them.

Wait on the Lord    Cling to Him- He will strengthen you
Psalm 63:8 TNIV  I cling to you; your right hand upholds me.
Deuteronomy 10:20 NLT You must fear the Lord your God and worship him and cling to him. Your oaths must be in his name alone.
Deuteronomy 13:4 NLT Serve only the Lord your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him.
Joshua 23:8 NLT Rather, cling tightly to the Lord your God as you have done until now.
Psalm 63:8 NLT I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely.
Psalm 119:31 NLT I cling to your laws. Lord, don’t let me be put to shame!

But those who (cling to the Lord)wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint
  Isaiah 41 30

Qavah to wait, to cling to:  learn how to wait on the Lord. Hebrew word “קוה” (qavah).  The literal meaning of the word is “to bind together like a cord.”making a rope (cord) by twisting or weaving (binding) thin threads together to form the rope. 

   May the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Keep His ways. Be of good Courage, and He shall strengthen your heart -All you who hope in the Lord.  Be Strong and Very Courageous!
Shalom!
Soaring Eagle

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”

  6. Jackie Hall says:

    I have a better understanding to the phase that was given to me, and that was “cling to hope” This was confirmation as well. A lot of scriptures were used that are in my personal confessions!
    Thanks so much! Jackie

  7. I was searching this morning in my quiet time with The Lord for the meaning of soar in Hebrew for this same verse, and stumbled upon your wonderful post. I loved the explanation of your dream and the drawings, and especially the visual description of the rope/cord hanging from heaven, right there by our side in the midst of every trial. I pray that I recognize and grasp hold of the help from heaven more and more – it is what God desires because when we are clinging to him for our strength then the glory for the victory when we overcome the present trial goes all to Him who made it possible! Thank you for the post!
