What should we expect?
Are you born again, a new creation in Christ? What does that mean and what should you expect from God in your life?
You can now be an active participant in your life and future. You are connected to God and have at your disposal all of His resources. (2 Peter 1:3) You no longer are destined for a life of frustration and fatalism. You have been recreated to cooperate with God in your future.
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.2 Peter 1:3 NIV
Confirming One’s Calling and Election
Expect increase in your life. An increase of love, joy, peace and faith. Expect new understanding and wisdom. Expect the favor of God and His blessings. Expect health in your body. Expect to be free from the religious thinking that God is out to get you. God is out to bless you!
What you expect is a powerful force in your life. Your expectations can be built upon fear and guilt, or they can be built upon the cross and the resurrected Jesus. God isn’t blessing you because you are perfect and deserving. He is blessing you because Jesus is perfect and deserving, and Jesus lives in you.
Expect God to speak to you. Expect His Word to come alive. Don’t let your senses and emotions rule your life anymore. Find the promises of God and give thanks. God cannot lie.
Don’t be a passive bystander in the Kingdom. Your desire, faith and expectation are the keys to cooperating with God’s best in your life. Expect your faith to bring His blessings into the world of the visible.
My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life;Psalm 23:5-6
Get a fresh revelation of how good God is. Your life will change!
“Surely blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply you.”Hebrews 6:14
