EXPECTATION

 

Jeremiah 29:11  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

 

God knows what He wants to do in our lives.  The thing that makes God laugh is when we tell him our plans for our life.

 

God does not wake up some morning and think, now how can I cause havoc for my son or daughter today.  All of God’s thoughts toward us are of peace, and not one of them is evil.

 

And thirdly, He wants to give us an expected end.  In the book of Hebrews, we can read, He wants to give us an expectation.

 

The definition of expectation is a reason or warrant for looking forward to something; prospect for the future, as of advancement or prosperity.

 

What prospect, advancement or prosperity are you looking forward to?  Do you look forward to the Spirit moving in our    services?  Do you look for  a  special revelation to you?  Are you praying about a job offer or promotion?  Are you expecting to become more prosperous than you have been?

 

When we have an expectation of God moving, we are more likely to experience God     moving.  When we have an   expectation of God prospering our journey,     investments, and decisions; it is more likely to happen.  Why?  Because we are  moving in faith believing for that which cannot be seen.

 

God has a plan for you that has been set since before the world was formed.  God has known every decision you would make good or bad.  In His infinite love and patience, He has waited for it to unfold.  And everything is working together for good, for those who love the Lord.
