What do you expect?

When we pray, “Thy Kingdom come”, we are praying about the future as we hope and expect it to be. (If it is to come, it isn’t here yet).  From partial to full, gradually over time,  we ask God to bring His Kingdom into full and glorious expression.  But do we really expect it?  These can be empty words without the confidence of deep faith.  Christian friend, do you really, joyfully expect the future to bring something wonderful? Not just finally but progressively? Do you ask God for justice and truth to triumph, and does a confident expectation flood your heart as a result of your petition?  This morning, I will meet with members of our church to plan the future as the Lord helps us to see it.  My prayer is that God will give us a noble dream, a confident expectation of the future and our part in His Kingdom as it comes.   Will you pray?  Will you expect?
