“ Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long. For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.” Proverbs 23:17-18 KJV
I had lunch with my friend Chris this week and we spent time talking about our unmet expectations. We talked about the pain, anxiety, uncertainty, insecurity, feelings of betrayal associated with unmet expectations when we felt like we’ve prayed in faith and done all that we know to do to get God to move but yet God did not come through when we hoped He would.
Chris and I went down the list of men and women in the Bible and realized that it’s the same story with them also that they all had similar feelings at some point. Perhaps you or someone you know might be going through a situation that’s causing you to think that God has forgotten about you, you’re wondering if God sees you and knows your situation, if He realizes how badly you need Him today. You look around you and you see others getting what you have need of.
The scripture above encourages us to not be envious but keep trusting God because our expectation shall not be cut off. I love how it says “For Surely there is an end” this should let us know that right now there is A Gap between us and our miracle. That miracle is ahead of you. The faith you should be applying now is called Patience. In the time being let us worship and praise Him and rejoice with others because our miracle is coming.
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Psalm 23:1 KJV
Father, I worship and praise you today for all the things you’ve done in the past, I thank you for all that you are doing all around the world. You are great and mighty to be praised. There is none like you because you are God and God all by yourself. I thank you because you are my shepherd, you are a great shepherd leading me in the right path to my miracle. I trust the journey and the process because you never fail. Amen
