Fresh Anticipation.

“One characteristic that marks the average church today is lack of anticipation. Christians when they meet do not expect anything unusual to happen; consequently only the usual happens, and that usual is as predictable as the setting of the sun…

We need today a fresh spirit of anticipation that springs out of the promises of God. We must declare war on the mood of nonexpectation, and come together with childlike faith. Only then can we know again the beauty and wonder of the Lord’s presence among us.” [AW Tozer (God Tells The Man Who Cares, pp. 168,170)]

Sometimes Tozer defies the 140 character limits of Twitter, so I wanted to add all of this passage.  It is such a challenge to me, personally. I know we cannot put the mighty presence and work of God on any schedule that involves man’s doing.  But there has to be an expectation that when we gather as His people anything can and should happen because the God of all Creation is in our midst.

Thanks, Louie Giglio, for letting me steal your words today.
