Our souls should ache vertical for the coming of the Messiah……
MICAH 7: 7 “AS FOR ME, I WILL WATCH EXPECTANTLY FOR THE LORD.”
In these current days and the ones ahead of us, let’s stay awake to the wonder of our GOD, looking for HIM……..and why?
BECAUSE JESUS SAID HE WOULD RETURN.
MARK 13: 26 “THEN THEY WILL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN THE CLOUDS WITH GREAT POWER AND GLORY.”
Our eyes turn upward when the storm clouds come, but do we look up when all is going our way? Do we still expect HIM to return for us then? Our eyes should forever be turned toward the sky, watching and waiting for this amazing event of HIS return. What joy, what exhilaration we will feel in our hearts seeing HIS return!
JESUS CAME AND WILL COME AGAIN!
MARK 13: 32-33 “NOW CONCERNING THAT DAY OR HOUR NO ONE KNOWS – NEITHER THE ANGELS IN HEAVEN NOR THE SON – BUT ONLY THE FATHER. WATCH! BE ALERT! FOR YOU DON’T KNOW WHEN THE TIME IS COMING.”
And since we don’t know when, and no one really knows, let’s remain watchful seeking HIM and HIS word every day to remind us that we are to be aware. Is today the day?
Be ever so thankful today that GOD WILL return for HIS Church! Thanking HIM is a form of worship and since we were made to worship let’s remember HIM today and every day that comes to us.
Give thanks and be watchful. Both are states of being that takes the focus off of ourselves and makes us CHRIST-CENTERED…….raising hands and eyes heavenward……expecting HIM.
DECREASE SO THAT HE MAY INCREASE.
Less of us and more mindful of our SAVIOR. Less complaining and more praising the ONE who will return! Less of our selfish desires and more of HIS will. Less of our wants and wanting more people to come to CHRIST.
DEUTERONOMY 32: 3 “I WILL PROCLAIM THE NAME OF THE LORD. OH, PRAISE THE GREATNESS OF OUR GOD.”
May we never forget our good and great GOD who gives us all things! HE gives us our lives to live and our breath in our lungs. So we should praise and worship HIM with all we have, waiting expectantly. Look up! Look for HIM each day with awe and wonder of who HE is because today……could be the day!
HABAKKUK 1: 5 “LOOK AT THE NATIONS AND WATCH – AND BE UTTERLY AMAZED. FOR I AM GOING TO DO SOMETHING IN YOUR DAYS THAT YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE EVEN IF YOU WERE TOLD.”
MATTHEW 24: 42 “THEREFORE KEEP WATCH, BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW ON WHAT DAY YOUR LORD WILL COME.”
