Anticipation Nation

I know that the Bible says that we are a nation of kings and priests but I believe that, from consideration of the assurances in holy Scripture, we could also accurately say that we are an Anticipation Nation. We can anticipate (1) seeing the direction of the Lord for our lives and our nation; (2) seeing things that are tending toward harm and/or interference (in our families, churches, jobs and nation) so they might be averted; (3) seeing blessings and advantages that are available to us through the promises and purposes of God Almighty; and (4) seeing strategy and how to pray for people we are concerned for.  (The fifth excerpt from Marty’s article “Anticipation Nation”)

Anticipate the Intervention of God

What are each of us anticipating seeing in coming days? Though we have often heard it said, it couldn’t help but do us good to say it again, “I anticipate the inevitable, supernatural intervention of God”. If faith comes by hearing, we should stoke the belly of that powerful believing steam engine with Scripture and upward looking quotations of victorious anticipation.   (The second excerpt from Marty’s article “Anticipation Nation”)

“Mature sons of God are peacemakers who have the ability and insight to make peace. Strife and division in a home is a sign of immaturity. A father of a household needs to know how to reconcile and bring peace to his home and family.”— Simon Purvis

Trust is a Principle of the Kingdom

Trust is a principle of the Kingdom.  God knew what He was doing when He created it.  It’s life-bearing, abundant-life-bearing. How beautiful it is that the principles of God are set in place to provide the John 10:10 abundant life for all who live them.  He gave us a map for life.  Check this out, Psalm 84:12 (AMP) “O Lord of hosts, How blessed and greatly favored is the man who trusts in You [believing in You, relying on You, and committing himself to You with confident hope and expectation].” Yes, that is beautiful.  But check out the rest of Psalm 84. It literally lines out what a life looks like that trusts God. Vs. 4 “Blessed and greatly favored are those who dwell in Your house and Your presence; They will be singing Your praises all the day long. Selah.”
(This is the fourth excerpt from the article “Trustworthy” by Melissa Gabler in SEEC Magazine.)

Promises With Anticipation

As the people of God assemble today, may they thoughtfully consider the infallible Word of God read in their hearing. May they stand upon each and every one of its promises and look with anticipation to the days ahead so they might see that their God has gone before them to show them the way. ”The Lord said to Moses, ‘Is the Lord’s hand (ability, power) limited (short, inadequate)? You shall see now whether My word will come to pass for you or not.’” (Num.11:23, Amp)

Anticipation = Wise Preparation

We may very well need to separate ourselves in anticipation of what we do not see in this moment so that we might see it in the next. We will need to separate ourselves from what we have not seen in the past year. In order to see what we need to see in the next moment (or the next year) we must separate ourselves from the distractions, interferences and disqualifiers of the present. Joshua’s instruction for the people to “separate themselves apart from” could include separating from such practical and mundane things as (1.) cynicism (2.) unbelief (3.) opinions of others (4.) from past disappointments (5.) from past events that never culminated in the desired outcome and (6.) from people who never followed through with influence or promises. Joshua’s words that seem to really stand out in 3:5 are, “Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow.” Anticipation is not an emotion but a matter of wise adjustments and preparation.   (This is the sixth excerpt from Marty’s article “Anticipation”.)
