Anticipation was made famous in a commercial showing a glob of ketchup slowly making it's way out of a bottle and onto your hamburger.
Anticipation is the feeling you get when your mother has just made your favorite dessert, but you can't have any until after dinner.
Anticipation is the feeling you get when your mouth is watering before you take a bite of your favorite food.
Anticipation is the feeling you get while waiting to open presents on Christmas morning.
Anticipation is the feeling you get waiting to graduate from elementary, junior, or high school.
Anticipation is the feeling you get waiting to get your driver's license.
Anticipation is the feeling you get waiting to see an old friend or relative.
It is a special feeling. The waiting, the wondering, the excitement, the suspense, the yearning, the longing, the anticipation.
That's the way we should approach God.
We should anticipate religious classes, religious services, and other opportunities to learn about God or to talk with Him through prayer.
Instead of looking at classes or services as an obligation, something you HAVE to do, we should ANTICIPATE the opportunity to learn or pray to God.
After all, the opportunity to learn about God or to speak with Him should be something to look forward to, to get excited about, to ANTICIPATE.
It shouldn't be "I HAVE to go to church", it should be "I GET to go to church". We should be thankful and excited about the opportunity to be with Him.
Changing your approach will change your whole attitude towards God.
