Waiting on the Revealed Will of God

In 1915, J. O. Fraser, the English missionary to the Lisu people in China, wrote: "How often Christian leaders make their own plans, work hard at them, and then earnestly ask God’s blessings on them. How much better, as Hudson Taylor felt, to wait on God to know His plans before commencing! Much Christian work seems to have the stamp of the carnal upon it. It may be ‘good,’ it may be successful outwardly—but the Shekinah Glory is not there."
