Waiting upon the Lord is a common theme in the Bible (in the older sense of wait from the King James and Geneva versions) and appears in Psalm 37 a number of times, in Isaiah 64, and, perhaps most famously, in Isaiah 40:31. This is a very important message, in fact, since those mortals who believe themselves capable of contributing to their salvation (or that of others) fail to fully comprehend God's mercy and kindness. It is more relevant to heavenly salvation than to earthly works since it is the heavenly works that are beyond our control.
At the same time, though, some people might do well to observe what earthly matters they cannot control, and Wally, although not the paragon of the responsible worker, is perhaps right to question the need to divert great energy into a project that, given his past experience at the company, is likely to fail or to be cancelled before it has a chance to do so.
(Apparently, nobody here listens to Fred Hammond or Donnie McClurkin.)
How sad am I that I actually used a computer program to search for this in the bible? lol
Here's the closest thing I could find:
"...but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth." (Psalms 37:9)
