Expectation with Anticipation!
Each of us already has a pretty full plate of anticipation about the coming year. We are built to anticipate. If we are honest, I believe we will admit that we are continually anticipating what is ahead whether we are anticipating good or bad, productive or nonproductive, desired or undesirable. Right in the middle of it all it would be quite helpful to us if we considered that it is quite difficult to anticipate the provision or intervention of God if we are not looking to God and His Word. Ps.145:15 (NKJV) “The eyes of all look expectantly to You, And You give them their food in due season.” (NET) “Everything looks to you in ANTICIPATION, and you provide them with food on a regular basis.” (This is the first excerpt from Marty’s article “Anticipation”.)
