Watching and WaitingSpeaker: Jan Magiera
- Series: General Topics
What does it mean to look to God? There are 19 different Hebrew words and at least 19 different Greek words that are translated "look." In this teaching, we concentrated on two principles: watching and waiting. We watch carefully, and earnestly looking for the answer from God, like a spy seeking for the clues. Then we focus (like a telescope) on the things that are not seen (2 Corinthians 4:17-18). We look for the "mini-hopes" to be fulfilled in our lives as we direct our attention to God's promises.
Then we practice waiting with expectation:
1. prosdechomai -- WAIT FOR
2. ekdechomai -- WAIT FROM...UNTIL
3. apekdechomai -- WAIT IT OUT
