Expectation corners

with 2 comments

The book tells of a king who prepared a city for some of his poor
subjects. Not far from them were large storehouses, where everything
they could need was supplied if they sent in their requests. There was
just one condition-that they should be on the lookout for the answer,
so that when the king’s messengers came with the answer to their
requests, they would always be found waiting and ready to receive
them.

The sad story goes on to tell of desponding subject who never
expected to get what he asked because he was too unworthy. One day he
was taken to king’s storehouses, and there, to his amazement, he saw,
with his address on them, all the packages that had been made up for
him and sent. There was the garment of praise, and the oil of joy, and
the eyeslave, and so much more. They had been to his door, but found
it was closed; he was not on the lookout. From that time on he learned
the lesson Micah still teaches us today. I will “look to the Lord; I
will wait for the god of my salvation; my god will hear me.”
