Have you had your Joy Juice today? Drink that joy with great expectations!
Do you have high expectations of God? If we totally trust in Him and His plan, then our answer to that question should be a resounding “YES”! God has high expectations of us, too! He created us to be a masterpiece and wants to help us achieve our purpose. We must be willing to do whatever it takes by being obedient to His leading. Often, we think we know what’s best…without consulting the Master Planner. We trust our gut more than we trust our God.
Let’s not forget that we should pray about everything. If it’s important to us, then it’s important to God. When we put our hope and expectations in Him, we will experience a lot less disappointment and frustration. There will be peace and joy as we release the worry and burdens to Him. People will disappoint us. But when we hope and trust in God, He will give us wisdom and understanding ….even in the times of waiting.
God tells us in Jeremiah 29:11 why we can have great, joyful expectations:
“ ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’”
Make sure your expectations are filled with the joy of the Lord.
