Waiting On God

To wait is not merely to remain impassive. It is to expect – to look for with patience, and also with submission. It is to long for, but not impatiently; to look for, but not to fret at the delay; to watch for, but not restlessly; to feel that if He does not come, we will acquiesce, and yet to refuse to let the mind acquiesce in the feeling that He will not come.

-Dr. A B Davidson
