Devotional: Waiting Expectantly
Christian Devotion about waiting on God
"...The Lord is my portion or share, says my living being
(my inner self); therefore will I hope in Him and wait
expectantly for Him. The Lord is good to those who wait
hopefully and expectantly for Him, to those who seek Him
[inquire of and for Him and require Him by right of
necessity and on the authority of God's word]..." -
Lamentations 3:24-25 (AMPC)
There's a difference between waiting and waiting 'expectantly'.
It takes faith to wait expectantly for the Lord to come
through. How often do we wait lacking faith and lacking
hope? When we do that, we feel like God isn't going to come
through so we might as well give up.
We need to remind ourselves of God's total trustworthiness
and His faithfulness. He knows the situation we're in and
all that we are facing. He won't forsake us to face it alone.
He can be trusted completely.
As we keep on reminding ourselves of this and remember past
experiences where God came through, our faith can be built
up, so we are able to wait 'expectantly'.
We expect the Lord to come through for us
When we wait with hope, faith and trust.
