I waited patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me and heard my cry.”
(Psalm 40:1, NASB)

“Waiting is much more difficult than walking, for waiting requires patience, and patience is a rare virtue … But God has a purpose in all of His delays. “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord” (Psalm 37:23).

Next to this verse, in the margin of his Bible, George Mueller made this note: “And the stops too.” It is a sad mistake for someone to break through God’s hedges. It is a vital principle of the Lord’s guidance for a Christian never to move from the spot where he is sure God has placed him, until the “pillar of cloud” moves. from Sunday School Times

Watch and wait for His leading.
