Moses said to Joshua, ‘Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff (rod) of God in my hands.’
- Wherever we go and whatever we do, we must make sure that the Lord is with us. - We must not do things in our own strength or in our own wisdom. - The ‘rod of God’ was a symbol that the Lord was with them. - Now, as you face the day, take hold of His hand, and He will give you the victory.
Prayer: Lord, thank You that You are with me. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, because You are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. Amen.
Daily Bible Verse: Isaiah 43:19
‘See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.’

Expecting Great Things From God
July 12, 2019
What are you expecting from God? Do you have an expectation that God wants to do great things or have you just resigned yourself to more of the same? I believe that we need to expect and anticipate that God has wonderful things ahead for each one of us. We need to be alive with hope and expectation. I believe that we can go further and ask God for His goodness in and on our lives and then to respond with faith and expect that very thing to become a reality in our daily lives. With each new day, month and year we should be living with a constant expectation that God is going to do great things.
What does it mean to live with this expectation that God wants to do wonderful things? A. To look forward to something. B. To be pregnant. C. To anticipate (excitement) or look forward to the coming or occurrence of something. D. To consider something probable, likely or certain. (Faith)
Hebrews 11:1 What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead.
To expect implies a high degree of certainty and usually involves the idea of preparing or envisioning
