"The God Of Our Salvation"

This is from Andrew Murray's "Waiting On God", from chapter one which is titled "The God Of Our Salvation" and begins with a verse from Psalms "My soul waits only upon God [marg: is silent unto God]; from Him comes my salvation." Ps 62:1

- "The deep need for this waiting on God lies equally in the nature of man and in the nature of God. God as Creator formed man to be a vessel in which He could show forth His power and goodness. Man was not to have in himself a fountain of life, or strength, or happiness. The ever-living and only living One was each moment to be the Communicator to him of all that he needed. Man's glory and blessedness was not to be independent, or dependent upon himself, but dependent on a God of such infinite riches and love. Man was to have the joy of receiving every moment out of the fulness of God... when he fell from God, he was still more absolutely dependent on Him. There was not the slightest hope of his recovery out of his state of death, but in God, His power and mercy. It is God alone who began the work of redemption. It is God alone who continues and carries it on each moment in each individual believer. Even in the regenerate man there is no power of goodness in himself. He has and can have nothing that he does not each moment receive; and waiting on God is just as indispensable, and must be just as continuous and unbroken, as the breathing that maintains his natural life."
