Only upon God

My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
Psalm 62:5 (KJV)
Eyes and hands and feet, mind and thought, may have to be intently engaged in the duties of this life; 'My soul, wait thou only upon God.' Thou art an immortal spirit, created not for this world but for eternity and for God. O, my soul! Realize thy destiny. Know thy privilege, and 'wait thou only upon God.' Let not the interest of religious thoughts and exercises deceive you; they very often take the place of waiting upon God. My soul, wait thou, thy very self, your inmost being, with all its power, 'wait thou only upon God.' God is for thee, thou art for God; wait only upon Him.

'My soul, wait thou only upon God.' No words can tell, no heart conceive, the riches of the glory of this mystery of the Father and of Christ. Our God, in the infinite tenderness and omnipotence of his love, waits to be our Life and Joy. Oh, my soul! let it be no longer needed that I repeat the words, 'Wait upon God,' but let all that is in me rise and sing: 'Truly my soul waits upon God. On Thee do I wait all the day.'
 Andrew Murray

Let anyone with ears listen!
 Matthew 11:15
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Even though my eyes, hands, feet, and mind be engaged in my daily duties, let my ears be attentive to your word, O my God.

After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
