Waiting, Not Running
Truly my soul silently waits for God;
from Him comes my salvation.
Waiting on the Lord. Be this our condition all day and every day----waiting in joyful expectation and prayer. When the soul thus waits, it is in the best and trues condition. We allow no dictation to God, no complaining or distrust of Him, and no seeking others for aid: neither of these would be waiting upon God. God, and God alone, is the expectation of our hearts.
From Him salvation is coming, it is on the road. It will come from Him and from no one else. He shall have all the glory of it for He alone can and will perform it. Though we see no sign of it as yet, we are satisfied to bid the Lord's will, for e know of His love and faithfulness. He will make sure work of it before long, and we will praise Him at once for the coming mercy.
