In many respects the Old Testament is a very unsatisfactory book. Nothing is actually solved in it. As someone has put it: The Old Testament is expectation; the New Testament is realization.
~J. Vernon McGee (from his commentary on the book of Job)
expectation vs. realization.
i expect a lot. i realize too little.
have you ever felt like you've been wandering around only to realize what you were looking for was right in front of you the whole time?
i expect God to work in my life. sadly, i don't always realize it.
