GREAT QUOTES on 'WAITING'

"Waiting for God is not laziness. Waiting for God is not going to
sleep. Waiting for God is not the abandonment of effort. Waiting
for God means, first, activity under command; second, readiness
for any new command that may come; third, the ability to do
nothing until the command is given."
- G. Campbell Morgan

"If the Lord Jehovah makes us wait, let us do so with our whole
hearts; for blessed are all they that wait for Him. He is worth
waiting for. The waiting itself is beneficial to us: it tries faith,
exercises patience, trains submission, and endears the blessing
when it comes. The Lord's people have always been a waiting people"
- Charles Spurgeon

"But how much self-reliance obtains in Christian service. More
effort is exerted in planning and arranging than in waiting upon
the Lord. Double is the time expended on preparing the division
and conclusion of a sermon than on receiving the power from on
high because there is so much trust in the flesh."
- Watchman Nee

"Waiting for God means power to do nothing save under command.
This is not lack of power to do anything. Waiting for God needs
strength rather than weakness. It is power to do nothing. It is the
strength that holds strength in check. It is the strength that
prevents the blundering activity which is entirely false and will
make true activity impossible when the definite command comes."
- G. Campbell Morgan

"By perseverance the snail reached the ark." - Charles Spurgeon

"Biblically, waiting is not just something we have to do until we get
what we want. Waiting is part of the process of becoming what
God wants us to be."
- John Ortberg

"It is in the course of our feeble and very imperfect waiting that
God Himself, by His hidden power, strengthens us and works
out in us the patience of the great saints, the patience of Christ
Himself." - Andrew Murray

"Teach us, O Lord, the disciplines of patience, for to wait is
often harder than to work." - Peter Marshall

'"Stand still" - keep the posture of an upright man, ready for
action, expecting further orders, cheerfully and patiently awaiting
the directing voice; and it will not be long ere God shall say to
you, as distinctly as Moses said it to the people of Israel, "Go forward."'
-Charles Spurgeon

"Prayer means not always talking to Him, but waiting before Him
till the dust settles and the stream runs clear."
- F.B. Meyer
