Waiting with Expectancy

24 01 2012

When I think of waiting with expectancy I think of a Child waiting for Christmas morning to come because they know great things await them as they open up the gifts under the tree.


When we wait with expectancy for the promises of the Lord do we wait with the same enthusiasm? Often we carry that promise as a burden in our adult life because unlike the child, we know the promises don’t turn our as we expect. When the Christ came, no one was expecting a baby, but that is how God intended for the salvation of the world to unfold. If scripture has taught us anything, we have learned, the promises of God work out in the timing of God and unfold in ways only known to God.


So waiting with expectancy is hard to do. What we need to do is to expect God to show up! If we watch and wait for Him in the situation rather than for him to do something for us, we will never be disappointed.


I have waited for several promises, one of which was my spiritual daughter to marry. She and carried this promise together for many years, she focused on the promise and as the years went on I couldn’t make it without turning my eye to how God was showing up. He molded my daughter and He changed her perspective and as He did she became the wife her husband needed her to be.


I believe we must watch and wait expectantly for God to show up, to comfort us, to teach us, to change us. The awe of the Christ child, touch everyone, from the angelic beings to the shepherds in the fields and the kings from far off lands. Who knew a baby could do so much, only God knew for He knows the hearts of man.


Wait with expectancy for God to reveal himself as you wait for every promise and you will never be disappointed!
