Growing in spirit and waiting on God do not come easily to us American Christians, because we have so much to do that does nothing for our spiritual development, and we have learned to want so much with immediate fulfillment. We tend to be inattentive for persistent growth and impatient with prolonged waiting, but both are necessary for walking with God and working for God. So, we look at this verse under two points: growing in spirit while filled with the Spirit, and waiting on God in the wilderness.
