EXPECTATION – GIVES REASON TO LIVE
If we can live with expectation then we are really living. Living with an expectation that God wants to show us His goodness and do great things, gives us reason to live. Without this expectation we die, slowly from the inside out. The Psalmist David understood this.
Psalm 27:13 [What, what would have become of me] had I not believed (expected) that I would see the Lord’s goodness in the land of the living!
God wants to be good to us in the ‘land of the living’. This speaks of being good to us in this life. David says: ‘What, what would have become of me had I not believed’. In the NKJV Bible it says: ‘I would have lost heart, unless I had believed’ In the ASV Bible it says: ‘I would have despaired unless I had believed’. Without expectation we loose heart, despair and come to nothing. I once heard someone say that if you expect nothing you will never be disappointed. That is not living. God designed us to live with expectation and hope.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT - EXPECT ANSWERS TO PRAYER
It is time to believe God for answers to the prayers that you have prayed. I am trusting for this very aspect in my life. There are many things I have prayed about, over the years and asked God to do. These things I am trusting and expecting God to answer and supply. I believe that this next season will be a season in which we will see many of these aspects, that we have prayed about, come to finality. This also speaks of fulfillment of things. These can include promises and prophecies or just the longing and desires of our hearts. What have you asked God to do? What promises and prophesies have you received that you are still waiting to see come to fulfillment? What are the desires and the longings of your heart? We need to live in expectation that God wants to do great things in all these areas. Remember that delay does not mean denial. However if there is a delay we must keep our expectation alive!
