Anticipate


Have you ever said something like "I would never have expected this in my wildest dreams"? Have you experienced an unexpected moment that surprised and excited your spirit? Most of us have been there at one time or another. The purchase of a home, winning a contest, achieving a goal, that unexpected promotion or perhaps the birth of a child. Things that, for some reason seemed out of reach for us, that we were able to achieve. There is so much out there, so much to anticipate that God has waiting for us.  God CAN do anything! Far more than we could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! How? He does it not by pushing us around, but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently working within us. Changing us little by little. Our circumstances will change. Our perspectives will alter. Our attitudes will adjust. Our characters will grow. From the inside out God's handiwork is taking shape. Day by day and little by little, working within us. Providing opportunities and challenges for us that will propel us towards His promise over and through our lives. Will we still have times of reversals or sitting still? Every day we have to choose to do the things that God intends for us to do. Sometimes we can have the right heart and we still choose the wrong thing. Carefully working through obstacles and trials are part of the refinement process. Learning how to walk takes time. Learning how to run takes longer. Life is an everyday learning process. God is working on us, deeply and gently perfecting us, from the inside out. Anticipate the changes with excitement. Anticipate far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! When you walk with God, you can expect to be able to achieve more than your wildest dreams ever imagined. Ephesians 3:20 MSG "God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us."
