|“When you came down long ago, you did awesome deeds beyond our highest expectations...”|
(Isaiah 64:3–4, NLT)
|Beyond Your Expectations|
God wants to exceed your highest expectations! He wants to bless you and increase you. He wants to make you more effective in your job, relationships and everything you set your hand to. The key is to expect to see His goodness. So many people today have misplaced expectations because they look to the news, the economy or other people to set the tone for their day. If you expect the worst, you won’t be disappointed. But if you expect to see God’s goodness, you won’t be disappointed, either.
Today set your expectations on God. Focus your heart and mind on Him. Meditate on His Word and sing a song of praise. As you do, you’ll see His goodness, and He will do awesome deeds beyond your highest expectations!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, I set my expectations on You! I lift my eyes to You because You are the source of my help. Thank You for filling me with Your peace and joy as I keep my hope in You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”|
