Fragment: Waiting on God in Dependence

Saul lost the kingdom of Israel through independence-through want of waiting upon God. He saw his people scattered from him, and his enemies pressing hard upon him; and these proofs of his weakness were too much for his heart unsustained by trust in God. He could not in such a trial wait for God. David gained the kingdom by taking the place of dependence; and by taking as his motto: " My soul, wait thou. only upon God."-" My help corneth from the Lord who made heaven and earth."
