For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.
Have you ever considered how influential our expectations are in our outcomes? If we do not expect good things to happen, they usually will not.
Often our expectations serve as limitations on what God can accomplish in our lives. We pray for the things that we desire in the ways that we determine they should happen under a deadline that we establish. But God’s Word tells us that He has greater things in mind than we can even imagine, that His plans are much better than ours, and that His timing is impeccable.
We often expect our blessing to look a certain way and be delivered on a certain date. If we stubbornly refuse to let go of our too-small expectations, we will limit the God Who wants to do exceedingly, abundantly above what we could think or ask (Ephesians 3:20-21).
We sell ourselves short! God has promised that our eyes have never seen, our ears have never heard, our minds cannot even imagine the wonderful things that He has in store for us (I Corinthians 2:9). Why would we settle for less?
Let’s make up our minds to expect the unexpected! Let’s wait for His answers with excited anticipation. Believe for the impossible. Hang on for a miracle. Let go of the limitations. God never disappoints.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Learn to expect the power and purity of His promises. May you open your heart to receive His unexpected gifts!
