Expect the Best!
Do you dread bad news? It arrives. Are you afraid of getting sick? It happens. You dread getting a bill, and there it is ... in the mailbox. It’s for good reason that the Bible says, “for the thing I greatly feared has come upon me.”
Why does the Bible talk about this? The Word of God is here to encourage you and teach you the keys to a victorious, powerful life in Jesus Christ. What we learn from this verse in Job is that fear opens a door to the enemy. However, consider this -- faith is the opposite of fear! It’s like fear reversed. It’s expecting the good things we hope for to happen.
What we wait for ... is what happens to us. We attract what we expect, what we're meditating on, what we're dwelling on in our hearts. So, if we're expecting the best, we will draw the best! And as we feed on the Word of God (which reminds us of His kindness and goodness), we draw what is good unto ourselves.
Maybe you’d say , “That’s a bit simple ... almost too easy.” True, but it’s biblical. The most effective solutions are not necessarily the most complicated. :-) Notice the simplicity of our gospel!
We encourage you to renounce fear and every negative thought, to keep your eyes fixed on the Lord’s mercies that are new for you this morning.
Thanks for existing!
