Psalm 62:5 AMPC – “My soul, wait only upon God and silently submit to Him; for my hope and expectation are from Him.”

Daniel 11:32b NKJV– “…but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”

Expectation is the act or state of looking forward, waiting for something or someone. Closely aligned with expectation are faith, hope, desire, patience, waiting, excitement, and joy. In life, we refer to a pregnant woman as one who is “expecting.” There is a process – some dos and some don’ts, there is waiting, and there is the delivery of the expectation. At the end of the forty weeks, she gives birth to her expectation. Using that analogy, as believers, we carry divine dreams, and assignments and expectations. Our faith, hope, desires, expectations, etc. are anchored in the infallible Word of God. And who is this God? Many are His attributes – unfailing, steadfast, strong, mighty, and innumerable are his miracles – parting of the red sea, turning water into wine, raising the dead. Like the lame man at the beautiful gate (Acts 3:5), the centurion (Matthew 8:5-11), the woman with the issue of blood (Mark 5:28), we need to fix our eyes on God, align your words with His word and walk in expectation that His rich promises concerning our lives and our purpose will come to pass by the power of the Holy Spirit. As believers we are supposed to be living in the supernatural – “the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits” (Daniel 11:32b), and many signs will follow them (Mark 16:17-18).
