Topic: BE POSITIVELY EXPECTANT
Bible Reading: Proverbs 13:12
📖13….”Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life.”
🔥Expectation is the expeller of hopelessness. It is the substance of hope, and the secret of resilience when a barrage of spiritual tempests come banging on our foundations. Expectation of the righteous makes him a prophet because it releases only positive statements which agree with God’s word from his mouth. Once his pronouncements are fulfilled, the righteous becomes a prophet because his desire and expectations have been granted…Proverbs 10:24.
🔥🔥To be effective in life, our act of watching must be backed by positive expectations. Hence, in Matthew 28:1 and Mark 16:1-2, some women went to Jesus’ grave with the hope of anointing their Saviour. Because of their positive mindset, God opened the door of the sepulchre for them, by rolling away the stone from the door in Matthew 28:2. This shows the power of hope and being expectant as a believer. As the expectation of evil was what Job feared most, and it came upon him in Job 2:5, it is important for the just to be careful of what he expects; because, God regards the expectations of his children… Proverbs 23:18.
🔥🔥🔥Being careful with what we expect, makes it a tree of life when it comes according to our text from Proverbs 13:12. In Job 19:25-27, Job later changed his expectation to good, and it came in 42:10. The expectation of the righteous is not cut short because it is God’s mindset for him…Jer 29:11. The deeds of the just, make him to create a path of holiness towards God, which shines brighter daily according to Proverbs 4:18. Beloveth, be rest assured that since the expectations of the wicked for you shall perish (Prov 10:28), your own desire for yourself shall come forth as that of the wicked goes into oblivion. Be positively expectant; because, God will do it for you.
🙏Dear Lord, direct my mouth to always speak only what you will approve to manifest in my life, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Ancient of days, by your compassion, always send your angels ahead of me to open any door shut against my expectations, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Thank you Father, for destroying the expectations of the wicked for me, and giving my desire an opportunity to come as a tree of life, in Jesus’ name.
