I do not have time to be in a hurry. — John Wesley

Samuel said to Saul, … “but you stay here for a while, so that I may give you a message from God.” (1 Samuel 9:27, NIV)

We are not to wear out or to rust out, but to live out, and God has as much to say about being still as about being busy. — Vance Havner

Wait for the Lord and keep his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land; you will look on when the wicked are cut off. (Psalm 37:34, ESV)

Here is the secret of Jesus’ life and work for God: He prayerfully waited for His Father’s instructions and for the strength to follow them. Jesus had no divinely-drawn blueprint; He discerned the Father’s will day by day in a life of prayer.

                                                            — Charles E. Hummel

Jesus gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 1:4-5, NIV)
