A little book, long out of print, called Expectation Corner, tells of
a king who prepared a city for some of his poor subjects. Not far
away he constructed a large storehouse where everything they
needed would be supplied if they would only send him their
requests. There was one condition, however: they should
constantly be on the lookout for his messengers so that when they
came with the gifts in answer to their urgent pleas, the petitioners
would always be found waiting and ready to receive them.
One faithless subject, not actually expecting to get what he asked
for, never watched for his delivery. One day he was taken to the
king's storehouse; and there, to his amazement, he saw scores of
packages that had originally been made ready for him. The
messengers had come to his door, but because he was not looking
for them, the king's gifts were never able to satisfy his needs.
Sometimes God makes us wait for things, simply because we are
so unbelieving and flat in the way we ask for His heavenly gifts.
Many will miss desired blessings because they close themselves in
their own gloomy chambers of doubt. How much better to be
stationed in the faith-illumined section of the garden of prayer
called "Expectation Corner." ~ Shepherd's Care ministries -
Our "Expectation Corner" is called First Baptist Church of Troy.
I know God will give us all we need and in the time we need to do
His will. Part of God's will is for us to 1) receive Jesus Christ as
our Lord and Savior, 2) tell others how to receive Jesus as their
Lord and Savior, and 3) be in Sunday School and each worship
service every Sunday. I'll be there looking for you and expecting a
great blessing! ~ Dr. Phil McRae, Pastor
Troy, North Carolina
