Anticipation is a wonderful thing. When expecting something good, we’re on the edge of our seats, with eyes wide open, waiting with excitement.
Anticipation is a part of faith. Faith believes that God is up to good things, working, helping and answering our prayers. Living with expectations is wonderful, and it’s how God wants you to think and live.
The psalm-writer David lived with faith, anticipation, and expectation. He told us about this in Psalm 5:3 (NIV) “In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.”
David had a good daily habit. He began his day with God. He started his morning with prayer, laying out his needs and requests to God. But his devotional time didn’t stop with prayer. Before he left his prayer closet and concluded his prayer time, he made sure his attitude was where it needed to be. He made sure he had prayed through his needs to a place of confidence in God and expectations of a response from Him. This is the part we need to improve.
How different would your day be if you not only prayed daily but never concluded your prayer time without coming to a place of faith and confidence that God not only heard you but was responding to you? What if you prayed and then really believed that answers were on the way! What if you lived each day with a “get ready, God is moving” mindset? Try it!
