We wait with hope.
We wait expectantly.
It's the season of Advent, meaning 'Coming' in Latin. It's a time of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the Nativity of Christ at Christmas and the return of Christ at the Second Coming.
'Waiting' seems to be the theme pouring from the hearts of all people this year. We wait for the Pandemic to cease. We wait for jobs to reappear. We long for hugs, special times with friends and family without feelings of "what if?", and we wait for a time that feels somewhat normal. 2020 has left us much baggage, but sitting at the top of the luggage pile is a beautifully designed box. It is filled with Hope.
1st Century Israelites waited with hope that Messiah would come. Are we any different? We know that Messiah has come and He is our hope of glory (Col. 3:27). But are we moving through our days with hope that He will return again?! ... and soon?
Is. 40:31 But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.
Are you waiting for the Lord? Be encouraged precious one, He is coming...again!
Our days should be filled with blessed hope that renews our strength and makes us RUN with strong fervor. Did you know that Hope deferred makes the heart sick? (Proverbs 13:12)
