Over and above what every other person expects from you, it is your own expectation that matters most. If you expect right based on the promises of God, you will have your expectation. And if you expect wrong based on your ancestry, past experiences, environment, situations, circumstances around you and what the devil has done in your life in the past, you will have what you expect. If you understand the fact that God is committed to your expectation, you will expect right and have your expectations. 

Many people get into trouble because they get what they are expecting which is not what God wants to give them. Most of the time, we expect what the devil wants to give but God wants you to re-programme yourself such that what you are expecting is what he planned to give you. It does not matter what the expectation of men and Satan are over your life, if your expectations in life are tailored towards what God has promised you in His word; you will always have God’s promises come to pass in your life. No matter what happens to you or what you are going through in life, never let your own expectation over your life be negative. Your outcomes in life will not just be according to your prayers, your faith, and your confessions but also according to your expectation. If your prayers, faith and confessions are right but your expectation is wrong, your outcome will end up wrong since the bible says that your expectation shall not be disappointed. Whatever your situation is, let your position, earnest expectation and hope be like that of Paul the Apostle that, “According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.” (Philippians 1:20.) 

 

Hebrews 10:12–13 says that the Lord Jesus is sitting on the right hand of God from henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.  Let your expectation be like that of Jesus Christ and Paul the Apostle. If Jesus has an attitude of expecting right, you must have and maintain same all through life. The expectation of job over his children and properties were not in line with divine agenda and so he received a negative outcome in life. Job 1: 5, Job 3:25

 

Whatever happens in life, expect a positive outcome from the Lord and it shall be well with you in Jesus’ name.

Prayer: Father, I receive grace and understanding to expect right and positive outcome in life at all times and in all situations and circumstances in Jesus’ name. Amen.
