There’s a HUGE difference in the way believers should be waiting.
If we believe that God is in control. That what happens in our lives has reason and meaning. That even when we can’t see or understand what’s going on…God is still in the business of “working all things for our good” (Romans 8:28).
Then we should be expecting something—anticipating God to do something.
As we draw ever nearer to Christmas, I pray that we would find our childlike faith. Watch a child and how they are just about to burst with anticipation.
God is about to break into the scene afresh.
Anticipate it. Expect it. Rejoice in it.
PRAYER: God, I want to believe you are working all things for my good. I don’t always see it. I don’t expect it. Forgive me for doubting and looking for the other shoe to drop. Renew my childlike faith and give eyes to see you working anew and afresh. Amen.

I love the idea of God breaking into our lives afresh! A great post, Tina. I’ll miss this series when it’s over.
Sherry, when I think about God breaking into our lives fresh, I always think of Lamentations 3:23 and the hymn, “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”: Morning by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed thy hand has provided…” What a good God we have!
