Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest. John 4:35
Have you ever been excited about something and you can’t explain what it is? You are happy and expecting something but can’t put into words what it is. That’s excited anticipation. Being excited about something you have prayed for and worked hard for but still can’t see the manifestation of it. Being excited about becoming someone that you have dreamed of being even though you are nowhere near being that person. This is not the “name it and claim it” thing many talk about, this is the “walk by faith and not by sight” that God’s Word talks about. This is the “all things are possible with God” thing that tells your Spirit “I CAN DO THIS“. Getting excited about something without any evidence of it and anticipating it’s success is the true definition of “blind faith“.
So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. Matthew 24:44
When the Word of God says no man knows the time or the hour, it’s not just talking about when God comes back for His people. It’s also referring to the things you have prayed for, the things you have worked hard for, the things you are expecting from God. No one knows, not even you, when He is going to do that thing for you. You can’t imagine when He is going to turn that situation around. You have no idea what His plans are for you but something in you is so darn excited. You get up anticipating something big to happen today and everyone wants to know why you are so happy even though you are broke, unemployed, single and/or ill. The reason is you are anticipating God’s favor and it’s so exciting, God is watching your celebration, listening to your praise and preparing your blessing. GET READY TO TESTIFY!
It’s about that time,
