from Day 14
“Waiting on God: The Way to the New Song”
The word patience is derived from the Latin word for suffering. It suggests the thought of being under the constraint of some power from which we long to be free. At first we submit against our will. Experience teaches us that when it is useless to resist, patient endurance is our wisest course. In waiting on God it is extremely important that we submit not only because we are compelled to, but because we lovingly and joyfully consent to be in the hands of our blessed Father.Murray, Andrew. Waiting on God (CLC Publications: Fort Washington, PA, 1999), 67.
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.
