After a series of disappointments we don’t expect much. We begin to feel life is a little cruel. We pull our hearts back little by little and keep our emotions hidden. Years roll by and we rarely feel anything deeply anymore. Sometimes we attempt to mask what we do feel with humor, but our laughter is tinged with bitterness. Our world shrinks around us as we build a wall of protection. Why? It’s because we no longer expect the good.
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. James 1:5.
If worry creeps in I remember his word.
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. Psalms 55:22
See there isn’t an area in life where God won’t help and guide you. He never leaves us alone in this world. He is closer than a brother. God is the one who will never disappoint so just pin every care and hope on him. Have faith in God, he can’t lie. God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Numbers 23:19
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." Deuteronomy 31:8.
You can have great expectations because we have a great God who is willing and able to fulfill them. So pull up a chair to God's table and expect the good.
Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. --Psalm 37:4
This is the best day the world has ever seen. Tomorrow will be better--R.A. Campbell
