"To wait on God is: (1). To live a life of desire towards God; to wait on Him as the beggar waits on his benefactor, with earnest desires to receive supplies from Him;... (2). It is to live a life of delight in God, as the lover waits on his beloved;... (3). It is to live a life of dependence on God, as the child waits on his father, whom he has confidence in, and on whom he casts all his care. To wait on God is to expect all good to come to us from Him, as the worker of all good for us and in us, the giver of all good to us, and the protector of us from all evil... (4). It is to live a life of devotedness to God, as the servant waits on his master, ready to observe His will, and to do His work, and in everything to consult His honour and interest. To wait on God is entirely and unreservedly to refer ourselves to His wise and holy directions and disposals, and cheerfully to acquiesce in them, and comply with them. The servant that waits on his master, chooseth not his own way but follows his master step by step. Thus must we wait on God as those that have no will of our own but what is wholly resolved into His."
