Wait On the Lord

"Wait on the Lord" is a constant refrain in the Psalms, 
and it is a necessary word, for God often keeps us
waiting.  He is not in such a hurry as we are, and it
is not His way to give more light on the future than 
we need for action in the present, or to guide us more
than one step at a time.  When in doubt, do nothing, 
but continue to wait on God.  When action is needed
light will come.

J I Packer
