“What do I lose when I have a praying life? Control. Independence. What do I gain? Friendship with God. A quiet heart. The living work of God in the hearts of those I love. The ability to roll back the tide of evil. Essentially, I lose my kingdom and get his. I move from being an independent player to a dependent lover. I move from being an orphan to a child of God” Paul E. Miller (ref#62, p125-126).
Reasons for Waiting for GOD:
Because You keep guard over knowledge, and overthrow the words of the treacherous (Prov 22:12), I will wait for You.
Because all Your decrees and precepts are sure (fixed, established, and trustworthy) (Ps 111:7), I will wait for You.
Because Your works stand fast and are established forever and ever (Ps 111:8), I will wait for You.
