Anticipation

Anticipation.  Excitement.  Awaiting.  Promise.

Can you remember a time in your life where you were anticipating something coming – someone coming?

Maybe the birth of a little one.  Maybe seeing someone that you haven’t seen in many years?  A new job? A new adventure?

For me, each day brings anticipation.  Anticipation of another day with my Lord and my Savior!  What will He bring me today?

Years ago, there was a man named, Simeon, who was “waiting” on the Messiah.  Each day, he waited.  It wasn’t that he didn’t have anything else to do – but he was always in the mode of anticipation – awaiting the coming of the Savior of the World.

“There was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon, and this man was righteous and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon Him.”         – Luke 2:25 (ESV)

Do you anticipate hearing from God each day? Are you aware of your surroundings?  Anticipating what God will do each day?  Through nature?  Through a friend?  Through His Word?  Through a hug?

God waits for us.  He anticipates us coming to Him.  Longing for us to feel His Presence.  

God is real.  Like us – He waits – He anticipates – He longs – for us to hear Him.

Diligently seek Him today.  Don’t let another day go by without reaching out to Him – to know Him – to desire Him.

My song that I share today is one of my favorites.  I know.  I know.  I say that about all the songs that I put on my blog!  My prayer is that you will sense His Presence and realize that He awaits – He anticipates – spending time with you.
