IN HIS STEPS
To watch is to keep strength. The flesh is our toughest enemy. It can override our spirit. The spirit may indeed be willing, but the flesh is weak. We watch our strength by storing up on what nourishes our soul.
To watch is to keep confidence. Confidence is a strong personal conviction that the Lord will come and save us, and will indeed fulfill His promises. To keep confidence is to be sure. To keep confidence is to be still.
To watch is to keep prayer. We pray as we wait. Prayer is connecting to God. It is disposing ourselves to Him for whatever purpose He may have for us. We pray that His will be done, even as we know that He loves us and has our best, deep in His heart.
Our prayer is that we actively watch and eagerly await our Lord's coming.
