“Expect!” That’s a Powerful Word!

“Expect.” That’s a powerful word. It’s different than ask or hope. You might ask someone to come visit and not give it another thought. You might even hope that your friend drops by for a cup of coffee and a chat. But – if you actually are expecting someone to come, you’ll get busy preparing for their visit and you’ll watch for their arrival. It’s not a matter of “if” but simply a matter of “when.”
The word “expect” was prophetically given to one of our board members last week during a time of prayer. It grabbed my heart and I truly believe should be the lens of our prayers this year. Let’s not just ask, or hope, but let’s pray in expectancy that God will meet our needs and guide us into a season of increased fruitfulness.
