A holy, joyful expectancy is the very essence of true waiting. And this is not only true in reference to the many varied requests every believer has to make but most especially to the one great petition which ought to be the chief thing every heat seeks for itself. That the life of God in the soul may have full sway. That Christ may be fully formed within, and that we may be filled to all the fullness of God. This is what God has promised. this s what God’s people too little seek–very often because they do not believe it possible. This is hat we ought to seek and dare to expect, because God is able and waiting to work it in us.
But God Himself must work it. And for this end our working must cease. We must see how entirely it is to be the faith of the operation of God who raised Jesus from the dead–just as much as the resurrection, the perfecting of God’s life in our souls is to be directly His work.
