I am concerned that modern Christians don’t live with anticipation nor expectation that God will bring about change. Like those who told Peter that believing Jesus would return was unrealistic because things had continued like they had since He left and there was no evidence things would be any different.
Awaking each morning to the same conditions you went to bed with, after a while, makes you lose hope it will ever be any different.
But God is not affected by those conditions. He is able to make all things new, to do exceedingly abundantly beyond what we expect, to turn our mourning into laughter.
When He does that is immaterial. That He does that is our promise of a new day. Hope is designed to cover the distance from our cry to God’s provision. It helps us live in the meantime.
Today, I choose to live in hope, knowing God is faithful and the provision is on the way!
