This could be the moment everything changes. This could be the season that all you’ve sown and prepared and labored and sacrificed and prayed through and kept expectant hope and stayed the course for all comes to fruition in ways that ONLY God could have orchestrated.
Having an expectant heart isn’t being wishful… it’s positioning our faith and hope in such a way that we’re alert, watchful, and waiting to see what God wants to say or do, and being obedient in response. It’s being ready and alert to the Holy Spirit’s quickening, “Watch this. Go there. Do this. Respond now. Get moving. Pause, wait. Trust me.” It’s living with hope and faith-filled expectation that God CAN and WANTS to help us in every part of our lives.
Not everything I’ve been hopefully expectant about has come to pass (yet). But that doesn’t stop me from continuing to fix my hope and faith in the One who is able. I believe Him, I trust Him, and I’m sticking with Him. Some prayers, hopes, dreams may be years away from fruition. I’m okay with that. But on the other hand, it’s entirely possible a “SUDDENLY,” only-God-could-have-done-it, wonderful kind of answer is just a day or two away and I’m keeping my heart expectant for just that.
This could be the moment.
Today could be the day.
It could all change in this season.
It’ll be better than you ever dreamed, imagined, or anticipated. It’ll be like 1 Cor 2:9, “No one’s ever seen or heard anything like this, never so much as imagined anything quite like it— what God has arranged for those who love him. But you’ve seen and heard it because God by his Spirit has brought it all out into the open before you.” I believe He’s got things He’s about to bring out into the open in your life and mine. And He can do it in a moment. I believe it.
I love what Christine Caine says: “Expectation is the breeding ground for miracles.” When we live with an expectant heart, every day is a day closer to seeing God show up and do something miraculous and wonderful in our lives.
I’m ready and expectant and alert for what God wants to do in us and through us, in Jesus’ name. The BEST is always yet to come with Him
I can see the promise
I can see the future
You’re the God of seasons
And I’m just in the winter
If all I know of harvest
Is that it’s worth my patience
Then if You’re not done working
God I’m not done waiting
You can see my promise
