"In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation." Psalm 5:3 (NIV)
During my devotional study time today, this verse jumped out at me.
(Before you start to think I'm some great disciplined Bible scholar, I can assure you I am not. In order to get myself on a schedule of sorts, I have a list prominently displayed on my laptop--the first on the agenda being --DO A DEVOTION--allowing myself to visit social media is #6 on the list)
But I digress...
How often do I wait in expectation?
I journal, I pray, I request, I worship, I write, I sing--not in any special order--but how often do I wait in expectation?
I have the joy that comes from knowing God hears my prayers. I know He has only good planned for me, to give me a future and hope. I know Jesus died for my sins and I will be with Him after I die; but do I wait in expectation?
I recently went to a writer's conference some 600+ miles away. The weather was beautiful and I got to drive the whole way. I waited in expectation for that event and I was richly blessed with His clear direction and new friends that feel like old friends already.
My daily time with the LORD has the same feel. We have a great time in communion with one another; my cup is filled to overflowing.
But do I wait in expectation?
