When we are seeking God for His perfect will, that is exactly that for which we must wait. When seeking Him for a future mate, a new job, or for the next step in our journey, we must always seek His will over that of our own, and be willing to wait for His very best. For in the long run, we will be proud we did.

“I realized that the deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able honestly to pray what He taught His disciples to pray: Thy will be done.”
―Elisabeth Elliot, Passion and Purity: Learning to Bring Your Love Life Under Christ’s Control
“God is God. Because He is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to.”
