For weeks I’ve been hearing, “Stir your sense of anticipation.”

Real Bible hope is not “wishing.” It is earnest, intense expectation that what God has said will come to pass. ~ Kenneth Copeland

But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Romans 8:25 NKJV

…we wait “with patience and composure.” ~ AMP
…we wait “patiently and confidently.” ~ NLT


That is why waiting does not diminish us, any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting. We, of course, don’t see what is enlarging us. But the longer we wait, the larger we become, and the more joyful our expectancy. ~ MSG


And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence to the full assurance of hope until the end, that you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:11-12
