Holy Expectation

Holy Expectation Candle

The Christmas season bring a holy expectation of His Presence. Just as Christ came two thousand years ago, we expect Him to respond to our songs of worship and praise for His Word says, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”1

We join with heaven’s song,

Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.2

As Mary carried the Son of God in her womb, her holy expectation was faith and uncertainty.


Today, we face uncertainty in our world, yet our hearts are filled with certainty that the great I Am is here with us in our hearts, and as we draw near, He draws near to us. We can take comfort in His Presence, and our holy expectation of He ‘who was and who is and who is to come’ remains intact.

    1. The whole durn thing seems so uncertain, don’t know what will be world’s fate,
      and Bubba, the whole mess is hurtin’, and days ahead ain’t lookin’ great,
      but I believe in what God said, we won’t be tossed beneath the bus;
      a Fella who can raise the dead for sure will not abandon us,
      so I kick the can on down the road, barefoot, and I wear a smile
      ’cause I know the heavy load is carried, yeah, with ease and style
      by the God who killed the gloom by dancing from the Empty Tomb.

  1. Earlier this morning I read, “And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.” (Luke 1:45, NASB). May we wait with expectation, even in the face of uncertainty, trusting God for He is always faithful.
