My Expectation is from God ( by C.H Spurgeon)

My Expectation Is From God

“My expectation is from him.” Psalm 62:5

It is the believer’s privilege to use this language. If he is looking for aught from the world, it is a poor “expectation” indeed. But if he looks to God for the supply of his wants, whether in temporal or spiritual blessings, his “expectation” will not be a vain one. Constantly he may draw from the bank of faith, and get his need supplied out of the riches of God’s lovingkindness. This I know, I had rather have God for my banker than all the Rothschilds. My Lord never fails to honour his promises; and when we bring them to his throne, he never sends them back unanswered. Therefore I will wait only at his door, for he ever opens it with the hand of munificent grace. At this hour I will try him anew. But we have “expectations” beyond this life. We shall die soon; and then our “expectation is from him.” Do we not expect that when we lie upon the bed of sickness he will send angels to carry us to his bosom? We believe that when the pulse is faint, and the heart heaves heavily, some angelic messenger shall stand and look with loving eyes upon us, and whisper, “Sister spirit, come away!” As we approach the heavenly gate, we expect to hear the welcome invitation, “Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” We are expecting harps of gold and crowns of glory; we are hoping soon to be amongst the multitude of shining ones before the throne; we are looking forward and longing for the time when we shall be like our glorious Lord–for “We shall see him as he is.” Then if these be thine “expectations,” O my soul, live for God; live with the desire and resolve to glorify him from whom cometh all thy supplies, and of whose grace in thy election, redemption, and calling, it is that thou hast any “expectation” of coming glory.

Expect Great Things ( by Bob Gas) Word for Today

Expect Great Things from God
‘…Hitherto hath the Lord helped us.’ 1Samuel 7:12

The Bible says, ‘Then Samuel took a stone…and called the name of it Ebenezer, saying, “Hitherto hath the Lord helped us.” As you end this year and look back, what do you see? Monuments to failure? Wasted opportunities? When it comes to your failures, God says, ‘I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions for Mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins’ (Isaiah 43:25 KJV). When it comes to your wasted opportunities, God says, ‘I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten…’ (Joel 2:25 NKJV). A wise man said, ‘If we do not learn from the past we are doomed to repeat it.’ It’s okay to look back and learn, but if you drive looking in the rearview mirror, you’ll end up in a ditch. Whether good or bad, don’t get stuck in the past. ‘Say not thou, “What is the cause that the former days were better than these?” for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this’ (Ecclesiastes 7:10 KJV). One of the dangers of growing old is that you become more excited about the past than you are about the future. A lady wrote to a newspaper editor and said, ‘Your newspaper is not as good as it used to be.’ He wrote back and quipped, ‘It never has been.’ God says, ‘I know the plans I have for you…they are plans for good…’ (Jeremiah 29:11 TLB). God has a plan for you this coming year. So, ‘hats off to the past and coats off to the future!’ Roll up your sleeves, go to work, and expect great things from God.

When You Hope in the God of Hope ( by Fenny West)

When you hope in the God of Hope

You will cope and never mope.

17 (as it is written,

“I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed — God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken,

“So shall your descendants be.”

19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb.

20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,

21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

 

God’s Everlasting Love

 28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Rom8:28

31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.

34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36 As it is written:

” For Your sake we are killed all day long;We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom8:31-39
