Waiting Souls – Thomas Brooks

Waiting Souls – Thomas Brooks

The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him (Lam 3:25). Waiting souls, remember this assurance is yours, but the time of the giving it is the Lord’s; the jewel is yours, but the season in which he will give it is in his own hand: the gold chain is yours, but he only knows the hour wherein he will put it about your necks.

Well! Wait patiently and quietly, wait expectantly, wait believingly, wait affectionately, and wait diligently, and you shall find that scripture made good in power upon your souls, “Yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry,” (Heb 10:37, Hab 2:3).
