PR30 – Day 19 (March 13)

Expectations

I’m a dreamer. High hopes. Big plans. Lots of vision. Foresight. Thoughts of the future are always pushing through the present in my thoughts. Expectations. Desires. Passion. Mostly to see the Lord move and bring His Kingdom to move people’s hearts, heal, restore, redeem, provide, and protection.

 These are not bad things, but sometimes my expectations have gotten me in trouble. I have a plan in my mind, a thought, a picture of how I think things might happen…and perhaps that is my flesh and not the spirit inside of me. It is something that I am constantly surrendering to the Lord. We grow and learn from our mistakes, of which I have made many. His way is always the BEST. I have learned this lesson over and over again…especially in the area of expectations and timing.

I started to make a list of specific areas in which I have had expectations, then deleted it.  Really, it is not beneficial to travel down that road again.  Submitted to the Lord for His timing and His best.

“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

Ephesians 3:20-21

My desire is to align my thoughts, my dreams, my hopes with yours Lord…let them become one.

 

“Trust in the LORD, and do good;
    dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
 Delight yourself in the LORD,
   and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

Psalm 37:3-4
