Waiting With Joyful Expectation by Robert Ricciardelli
When we wait on God we wait with joyful expectation. Without expectation we can become hopeless in our present moment. When we wait expectantly, we open ourselves up to joy and strength. We remain awake and alert for the Lord's leading presence. We throw off the darkness and equip ourselves for His oncoming light. The expectation of God's promises allows us to be present and ready at all times, and for any occasion.
