Been thinking about waiting recently and how reliable it is in life no matter what the occasion. It's ultimate purpose is to increase our dependence on God. Though I have tried saying outloud God I am waiting show me the answer!!! What I often times feel I am really saying is that I hate every second of this waiting and I don't trust that you know more than me so could you please just give me what I want so that we can get on with this! Hmmmm.... How God is teaching me the importance of the condition of my heart and that from the fullness of my heart my mouth speaks. I am encouraged by the words of Andrew Murray:
" The great stillness of soul before God that acknowledges its helplessness and waits for Him to reveal Himself; the deep humility that does not allow one's own will or strength to work to any degree except as God works; the gentleness that is content to be and to know nothing except as God gives light; the entire resignation of the will that only wants to be a vessel through which His holy will can be revealed and accomplished- all these elements of patience are not found overnight... but they will come as the soul maintains its position and repeats, 'Truly my soul silently waits for God; from Him comes my salvation' (Psalm 62:1)"
