Tired of life as usual? Then you need to check your level of expectation i.e. how desirous you truly are for the kind of life you really wish for.
People hardly expect good things; most today are wired to expect the worst in every situation. This is because the fallen human nature is configured to feast on and expect unprecedented evil rather than good.
As a result, people always expect to fall, get hurt and to fail; therefore, they prepare very hard for and against evi, and all kinds of failure.
Funny enough, when the ‘long awaited’ evil or failure comes, their hearts fret against God.
The word of God says that God is able to meet and exceed our expectations- to the proportion of our inner longing for them.
EPH. 3:20 (MKJV) Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think,according to the power that works in us
In this context, Charles Kettering, a 19th century American engineer once stated that
High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.
How expectant are you of a preferable tomorrow?
Do you see God bringing it to pass by coming forth for you and causing the resources of heaven and earth to attend to you?
Can you see Him paving the way for you and causing all things to attend to you?
Do you look forward to your desired change more than the night watchman waits for the morning?
Are you literally stretching your neck to catch a glimpse of it as you would at the arrival of a bride in an overcrowded
You sure need to jerk up your expectation to that level.
That is the kind of expectation God honours, meets and surpasses!
Lord, Truly, I desire change. The problem is that I don’t see it coming. The realities of today have wired me to prepare for the worst in every situation, and yet I say I have expectations.
Change me! Cause me to will and to do of Your good pleasures. Create an earnest longing for my desired change in my heart- a longing stronger than the unpleasant realities of today. A longing strong enough to command Your attention and speedy intervention. Amen!
