Expect today!

God always meets us at our level of expectation.

So true.

The Bible tells us in Job 14:7-9, "For there is hope for a tree, when it is cut down, that it will sport again, and its shoots will not fail. Though its roots grow old in the ground, and its stump dies in the dry soil, at the scent of water it will flourish and put forth sprigs like a plant."

Even though you might feel that all is lost - it's a season in your life - and things will get better.

As one author has written, "you're going to sing again. You're going to dance again. You are going to live. You're going to climb out of the debris and crow. By the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, you're going to get busy living'!"

Let me give you a quote.

"Deep within you there is a Spirit of faith, just waiting to be resurrected. Get to him (God)! Whatever it takes, touch Him. Crawl if you have to, but get to Him."

As you touch God, expect good things to happen!

Expect a renewal of God's Spirit in your life this week.

Expect God's glory to come to and upon you.

Expect God's favor.

Expect favor from those in authority over you.

Expect new joy to rise up in your spirit.

Expect God to meet your needs.

Expect angels to visit you (now you've gone off the deep, end George!)!

Expect to be released from bondages.

Expect that project to be done.

Expect that relationship to come back into harmony.

Expect your friends to start a relationship with God.

Expect your enemies to fall.

Expect doors to open that have been shut.

Expect, expect, expect!

This week is a "new day" for you!

"Father, thank you for the good things that are going to happen this week. We expect you to move in a powerful way!"

A while ago, you used a demonstration using a glass and a bucket...or was it a bucket and a very large box? Anyway, God is going to "prosper" us with our wishes in accordance for what we ask/pray for...if we pray small, our "benefit" will be small. If we pray large, then we will be blessed large. God truly does want to give us the desires of our heart...He wants to give us all that we desire...at the appropriate time and date that we would need it the most. But it may take us working hard for it; if everything came easy, then we would get prideful and claim victory for ourselves...it's when we come across instances that we cannot control, or cannot fix, or cannot influence, that God shows us His majesty and power. It is through Him that we prosper...yes, I know that sometimes it seems that the evil are prospering in the world. It is not prospering here that is truly important...it is eternal prosperity that wins out. I will take the rewards of eternal heaven over the money/goods/prestige/wealth/fame of this earth...He will take care of us until that day and will ensure that we are in His kingdom, if we but ask Him and let Him.

God bless. Expecting the best in my life!

George:

Last year we studied Beth Moore's bible study - "Believing God". I was amazed at how short we (I) sell God. Faith is expecting God to work. Thanks for the reminder that we can expect great things from God.

I'm believing God...
