Patiently Waiting on God

One of the more surprising mitzvot is to wait on G-d; that is, to wait for G-d.

Why is exercising patience to wait on God sufficiently problematic so as to warrant a mitzvah devoted to it? It is because natural man's way is to be impatient and to seek immediate gratification, so that when natural man petitions God for something in prayer, he judges whether or not God has answered or will answer his prayer by whether or not he sees immediate results.

Waiting on God builds our faith and our dependence on Him, which are good things.

Mitzvah G18
