“The Lord said to Moses, Has the Lord’s hand (His ability and power) become short (thwarted and inadequate)? You shall see now whether My word shall come to pass for you or not.” (Num.11:23, Amp) There is a lot unseen that is yet to be seen and it shall be seen that the Lord’s hand is not short that it cannot save nor is His ear deaf that it cannot hear. Some of the wonderful mysteries that await us in coming days shall be the wonder of seeing how our LORD shall fulfill His Word, i.e., seeing who and what He will employ to bring about that which only He can accomplish. What an apropos time for us to pray Elisha’s prayer for ourselves: 2Ki 6:16 “[Elisha] answered, Fear not; for those with us are more than those with them. 17 Then Elisha prayed, Lord, I pray You, open his eyes that he may see. And the Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” (Amp) (The first excerpt from Marty’s article “Anticipation Nation”)
A couple was sitting at their kitchen table going over their finances and planning the family vacation which was yet three months away. Their little 5 year old boy had been in the den playing and watching TV during the planning session. It was getting late so he decided to go to his room. As he passed the kitchen the only words he heard were, “OK, so we are going to Disney World”. The little boy’s heart leapt with excitement and he quickly ran to his room. Sometime later, the parents finalized their three-month plan while finishing off their coffee. As they headed for bed they looked in on their son to make sure he was asleep. When they looked into the room they saw the little 5 year old lying over on his over-stuffed travel bag sound asleep. He was wearing his swim mask, his Mickey Mouse shirt, one white shoe and one red shoe. His anticipation warranted that he be prepared to travel when it was time to load the car. What are we saying that is causing the coming generation to positively anticipate the future? (This is the ninth excerpt from Marty’s article “Anticipation”.)
Do you need your life to shift in the next few weeks? It is possible to shift. Just what can we shift? It is possible to shift our anticipation from negative to positive. Our family or cultural background may have us anticipating something that is not at all going to happen. How many people have misinterpreted a bump in the night? The character of God, the Word of God and His Kingdom purposes are our anticipation. Our risen Lord and His original intent for our lives and this nation are our anticipation. Whatever God did once in the Bible, He can do again in our lifetime. (Ps.145:15, NET) “Everything looks to You in anticipation”. We are praying you discover daily that you are shifting and readying yourself for a God-turn in your life.

As the people of God assemble today, may they “anticipate the inevitable, supernatural intervention of God”. May we forsake familial and cultural anticipation that is focused on temporal and carnal expectations and human experience. May the people of God stand firmly in the assurance that what Almighty God did in the Bible, He can most certainly do again in our lifetime.
“Everything looks to You in anticipation.” (Ps.145:15, NET)

(LARRY BURDEN is speaking at Kingdom Congress 2017. This is an excerpt from one of his articles.) The Passover was also important to Jesus because a divine shift was coming to the disciples in their relationship with the Father. In John 15: 15, Jesus told His disciples, “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you”. The terminology identified a relational shift from that of servant-master to one of son-father. Up to the night of the Passover, the relationship of the disciples to Jesus had been strictly business. However, after the Passover meal, that changed! In the new covenant, the disciples were no longer held by the Father as servants, but sons! That night was a divine appointment that had been in the making before the beginning of time!
