I used to expect trouble, kind of like Murphy’s Law. I expected to fail, and I did. I have since learned to hope for what God’s Word says. I expect the God that loved us so much He died for our sins to finish the work He started. I no longer live anticipating bad news; I am living the Good News watching and expecting for God’s provision and His intervention.
Expectancy is Another Word for Faith
My hope for the future is colored bright.
I expect wrongs will be changed to right.
In every difficult step we take
I expect new strength in renewed faith.
Hope and expectation holds unto faith’s hand.
The three unite to accomplish God’s plan.
Just as we hope for a child, we in faith expect,
Our beautiful God-given gift.
Love grants what we have faith to receive.
God gave all we can hope for to set us free.
When down in the dumps and hope and expectancy is low;
Faith in God’s love lifts me up and it will not let me go.
Hope is renewed like a fresh rain on parched ground,
And expectancy for God’s favor again is found.
Faith looks up and will not look back
God’s love again, pulls hope, expectation, and faith; united back on track.
1 Corinthians 13:13
And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
