How can I live with expectation?

Here are a few simple ways it which this can become a reality in your life: Ask God to give you a fresh spirit of expectation.

We need a fresh spirit of expectation

AW Tozer wrote: ‘We need today a fresh spirit of anticipation that springs out of the promises of God.’ Faith and expectation work together. Hebrews 11:1 Faith assures us of things we expect and convinces us of the existence of things we cannot see. (God’s Word Translation) When you live with expectancy your faith has the […]

We must declare war on non-expectancy!

Isaiah 40:31 (Amplified Bible) But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.
