from Day 11
“Waiting on God: Patiently”
“Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.” Yes, for Him. Do not seek only the help or the gift; seek Him. Wait for Him. Give God His glory by resting in Him, by trusting Him fully, by waiting patiently for Him. This patience honors Him greatly; it leaves Him, as God on the throne, to do His work; it yields self wholly into His hands. It lets God be God.Murray, Andrew. Waiting on God (CLC Publications: Fort Washington, PA, 1999), 57.
I have deliberately limited myself to only twelve quotes from this book, as with every book which I feature here, but there is so much more that I wanted to share with you. Of course, I’ve shared these twelve clips to whet your appetite to want to read this devotional book for yourself, so by all means get this book and make it a part of your quiet time. Andrew Murray is one of my favorite authors, and his writings never cease to encourage, uplift, and convict my heart.
