10 Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. [To be still is to humbly silence your mind so that you can hear the Word of God within your heart speak to you and become aware of His presence.]
4 Stand in awe and do not sin; meditate within your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
14 Wait, and hope for, and expect the LORD! Be of good courage and let your heart be confident! Wait, I say, on the LORD!
20 Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
|Isaiah 30:7,64:4 |
7 For the Egyptians shall help in vain, and to no purpose; therefore I have cried concerning this, "Their strength is to sit still."
4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by ear, nor has the eye seen a God beside you, who acts for the one who waits for him.1 [Paul quotes this scripture in 1 Corinthians: "Man's eye has not seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, the things that God has prepared for those who love him." The key difference: Isaiah reads waits, 1 Cor 2:9 reads love. So to love God is to wait on Him: we wait on Him to hear His words that teach us, convict us, encourage us, and guide us — that is loving God.]
