Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 11th August

Waiting, Not Running

Truly my soul silently waits upon God: from him comes my salvation. (Psalm 62:1)

Waiting on the Lord. Be this our condition all this day and every day. Waiting His leisure, waiting in His service, waiting in joyful expectation, and waiting in prayer. When the soul thus waits, it is in the best and truest condition of a creature before his Creator, a servant before his Master, a child before his Father. We allow no dictation to God, nor complaining or distrust of Him. At the same time, we practice no running before the cloud and no seeking to others for aid: neither of these would be waiting upon God. God, and God alone, is the expectation of our hearts.

Blessed assurance! From Him salvation is coming; it is on the road. It will come from Him and from no one else. He shall have all the glory of it, for He alone can and will perform it. Though we see no sign of it as yet, we are satisfied to bide the Lord’s will, for we know of His love and faithfulness. He will make sure work of it before long, and we will praise Him at once for the coming mercy.
