Waiting on God

I finally enjoyed a couple of days hiking in the snow. Each season endows us with its own beauty, for which I intend to enjoy each moment of God’s created Glory. Thought and decisions in the making rummaged through my mind today. I took this quote from Andrew Murray and Psalm 62 to meditate on during today’s hike.

Truly my soul silently waits for God;
From Him comes my salvation. Psalm 62:1 NKJV

“It is then because Christians do not know their relation to God of absolute poverty and helplessness, that they have no sense of the need of absolute and unceasing dependence, or the unspeakable blessedness of continual waiting on God. But when once a believer begins to see it, and consent to it, that he by the Holy Spirit must each moment receive what God each moment works, waiting on God becomes his brightest hope and joy. As he apprehends how God, as God, as infinite Love, delights to impart His own nature to His child as fully as He can, how God is not weary of each moment keeping charge of his life and strength, he wonders that he ever thought otherwise of God than as God to be waited on all day. God unceasingly giving and working; His child unceasingly waiting and receiving; this is the blessed life.”

Waiting on God; “First Day”, Andrew Murray, 1895

About the Ordinary Hiker

A Christian camp director for many years, I enjoy ministry and being outdoors. I refer to God's creative wonder as the testimony of creation, a special place where God brings His word to life. Its where I like to be and where God speaks in His gentle voice in the awe of His creative work.
