At the beginning of January I began praying for a word for 2017, one word that I could reflect on. A word that would be a reminder to look up when I get so busy trusting in me that I forget how much control I don’t have. God placed the word “expectation” in my mind and on my heart. Living with expectation, knowing that God is going to do big things and my only job is to expect it from Him. Expect Him to get you over an obstacle and He will probably just move it out of the way. He moves mountains, people! I’ve always struggled with trusting God to do just the bare minimum. I didn’t expect Him to do more. Now, retraining 20 something years of thinking is a little difficult but I have my expectations, and they’re not based on my abilities soo pretty sure God and I will work it out.
For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him. (Psalm 62:5 ESV)
