Dr. Hugo Heyrman, Waiting, 2006, acrylic paint on paper (21 x 29,7 cm.)

Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him. Isaiah 64:4 The Hebrew word for waiting in the above passage is chakah {khaw-kaw} which means to wait, wait for, await, tarry, to wait (in ambush) or to long for.

He told them God, who had existed long before their ears could hear or their eyes could see would once again act in Israel’s behalf. They just had to “wait” for and “long for” Him. Isaiah had this revelation knowledge and understanding of God’s love for His people and that He could and would provide whatever they needed, provided there was a “father-child” relationship.

“But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we are all the work of thy strength and power.” God’s strength and power is revealed by and through His creation. All of creation sees the miraculous creative power and strength of God. What other God has ever been able to do what our God has done?

From one of the inner walls of Fort Santiago remains this lonely protrution a silent witness to one of the most historicals sites of the Philippines. José Rizal, the country's national hero, was imprisoned here before his execution in 1896, and the site features, embedded onto the ground, his final footsteps representing the walk from his cell, to the location of the actual execution.

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. Romans 8:18-24
