The Lord is faithful to His promises, not our expectations.
As humans, we have expectations. It’s normal. But the problem is where our expectations are entitlements and demands that God must follow. I say this because as a high school graduate, I had all these expectations that I would be a career woman, wife, and mother by 30 (crazy? I know). It was less about God and more of me boosting my ego. Well, God just LOLs at me because He’s got the plan.
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.-John 10:10b
This can be construed as God is my genie and will give me all I expect and all I want. NO!!! Step away from that idea.
God’s faithfulness is not what we want. God sees beyond our expectations and it is ALWAYS better. God ALWAYS provides according to His Will. He does not need our permission to carry out His plans. We have to wait on the Lord (Psalm 27:14).
Easier said than done but hear me out…
If the Creator of the Universe can create everything out of nothing, what makes you think that He will not do the impossible for you?
Preaching to the Choir? Yes. I am learning that in my own life. My expectations are small in contrast to God’s great plans.
The Beauty of God’s Plan: Every time, God has given more than I thought, come through in too many ways I never thought, protected me from destructive, alternative situations, and opened my eyes to something new.
So consider that. Not our expectation but His great promise for our lives. God has never steered us wrong and never will. Keep going and God will show you the Way.
