So, Lord, what hope do I have? You are my hope! (Psalms 39:7 ERV)
For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope, because who hopes for what he sees? (Romans 8:24 NET)
What are you waiting on God for? What expectations do you have of him? What are you hoping for?
We are to be bold in our expectation of God. Call him on his word, demand the destiny he predestined before the world. He is waiting on you to want it.
Do any of you need wisdom? Ask God for it. He is generous and enjoys giving to everyone. So he will give you wisdom. But when you ask God, you must believe. Don’t doubt him. Whoever doubts is like a wave in the sea that is blown up and down by the wind. (James 1:5, 6 ERV)
Dear Father, as we hope, we wait patiently for your word to be made manifest in our lives. We offer our sincere praise to your Holy Name. Father you created us in your image and likeness and we ask that you continue the work you have begun in us so we can walk in our destiny.
If you let that patience work in you, the end result will be good. You will be mature and complete. You will be all that God wants you to be. (James 1:4 ERV)
in Jesus name, Amen.
