>What is "Waiting for God"?

>
G. Campbell Morgan offers a tremendous definition of what it means to “wait on God”…and I, for one, find this discipline of “waiting” to be a most difficult part of following after Jesus…I’d rather do just about anything than, ah, “wait…”

“Waiting for God means…readiness for any command; that sense of
perpetual suspense which listens for the word in order that it may be
immediately obeyed. Those who wait for God are pilgrim souls that have
no tie that will hold them when the definite command is issued; no
prejudices that will paralyse their effort when in some strange coming
of the light they are commanded to take a pathway entirely different to
that which was theirs before; having no interests either temporal or
eternal, either material or mental or spiritual, that will conflict with
the will of God when that will is made known.”

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
