You may have observed like I have done that expectation of a breakthrough from god excites you! When that kind of an expectation is present, joy is present. In fact, joy is the proof of expectation.
Depression & disappointment are evidences of fear present. The fear of loss. The fear of less than enough.
Expectation is an impossibility until you sow a seed. Regardless of it’s size or shape, every seed has in it the life of god & the potential to multiply.
Expectation is produced by obedience. Obedience is the proof of faith in God’s word. Faith is unshakeable confidence in God!
Jesus constantly prompted expectation! In John 4, Jesus promised living water 💦 to the woman at the well of Samaria who was willing to hear Him. In fact, he told her that she would never thirst again!
Jesus always responded to those with great expectation – like when He openly commended the roman centurion for his faith & then healed his sick servant by speaking the word!!
Hebrews 11:1 (AMPC)
Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].
Mark 10:29-30 (MSG)
Jesus said, “mark my words, no one who sacrifices house, brothers, sisters, mother, father, children, land—whatever—because of me and the message will lose out. They’ll get it all back, but multiplied many times in homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and land—but also in troubles. And then the bonus of eternal life!
