Acts 1

"And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, "which," He said, "you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now."
- Acts 1:45

Jesus did not tell His disciples to do anything. He told them to wait: to wait to receive the Promise of the Father. Why do we hurry into doing things "for God" when sometimes He just wants us to stop and wait on him? Go when He says "Go." Stay when He says "Stay." Proceed when He says "Proceed." Wait when He says "Wait."
