When a woman is pregnant it is said that she is “expecting.” What is she expecting? Not a dog or a hippopotamus or a field of poppies or a bag of stones. The mother doesn’t have to worry about what is going to come out after nine months. She is expecting a baby.
What are you expecting from God? Is it a sure thing like the pregnant woman? Do you expect blessings? Do you expect good things? Do you expect God’s promises to be fulfilled in you? If you have been through some tough times of troubles, maybe your “expector” is broken or damaged and you are in the throes of doubt or discouragement.
The Psalms brings us enlightenment into the heart of the Father. Here are some things that you can to expect with certainty. “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Ps 46:1. “If you make the Most High your dwelling, 10 no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. Ps 91:9-11.”The Lord is for me; what can man do to me?” Ps 118:6. “The Lord will accomplish what concerns me” Ps 138:8.
What else can you expect? You can expect God to answer prayer. You can expect all the promises in the Bible are true. You can expect God to honor his Word. Proclaim without hesitation everything that you are expecting from God just like the pregnant woman proclaims she is expecting a baby. Why? Because that is what God is expecting of you.
