ATTITUDE OF EXPECTANCY

Do you feel like someone has hit the pause button on your life lately? We are moving at a much slower pace these days, and it feels like a time of waiting.  Waiting for sickness to pass, for life to return to normal, for assurance that our loved ones are safe, for church buildings to reopen. At first, waiting seems painful. I don’t know about you, but for me patience can be difficult.  Waiting and uncertainty, while still painful, can bring about great faith for what is to come. During this time of waiting, people are praying desperately for God to heal, protect, and comfort. Powerful prayers can come from a place of waiting.

So are you expectant for God to move?  An attitude of expectancy is a part of faith. We believe in faith that God is who He says He is and that He can do more than we could ever imagine.  God is not absent in the waiting.  Even when our understanding is limited, God’s power is not. 

Our church sang a song on Sunday called “This is a Move.” Here are a few of the words to this song:

“Miracles happen when you move

Healing is coming in this room

Miracles happen when you move

Heaven is coming”

Church, let’s not wait in fear. Let’s hold tight to the truths about who God is and let’s live in a place of expectancy.  Let’s pray for miracles.  Let’s pray for healing.  Let’s pray for Heaven on earth. 

Ephesians 3 :20-21 “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
