Anticipation is Inevitable

Anticipation is inevitable. The coming generation will anticipate something whether positive or negative. But what will they anticipate? One of the biggest favors we can do the coming generation is to build anticipation into them: anticipation for the intervention of God in their lives and in our nation. We must see beyond and we must help them to see beyond that which has been the norm in our nation and in impotent religion. Let’s help them to anticipate the unconventional which no previous generation has seen, to be what no generation has been. Mic.7:7- “But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me.” We are praying you discover daily that you are looking beyond the ordinary and you are helping the coming generation to anticipate new possibilities.  


The Ordinary Ordained by God

Something very ordinary ordained by God to be applied in a unique circumstance turned the tide for a nation. Though the giant loomed large in the valley (1Sam.17:3-4), God had sent a shepherd boy over the top of the hill for the purpose of going down into that valley to contradict the giant. An army did not take out the giant. A small smooth stone from an ordinary shepherd’s sling was all it took to end the giant’s career. The faithful God of Israel still does business the same way He always has.
