In the beginning of this year, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Jewel Summit at my church. We had an amazing guest preacher from California who spoke a mighty word regarding the power of expectation. Out of all of the amazing Jewel Summits I have attended, this word resonated with me the most and has shaped the way I view my life.
Some keys take away points:
-When you are expecting something from God , you will never be the same. Expectation is a behavior and you must adjust yourself accordingly
-The life we live and the challenges we face come to try and steal our expectations because the enemy is aware of how powerful expectation is. If the enemy succeeds in stealing your expectation it will cause you to forfeit your own destiny
-When you are expecting more from God, you have to understand He will send you to some unexpected places, meeting unexpected people that will take you to the next level in His plan
These are just three or the many points that I have on my iPad but they stick with me the most. Whenever I am close to having a “throw in the towel” moment, I have to remind myself of the promises God made to me and what I am expecting Him to do in my life.
That expectation is what keeps me waking up at 4am to go to a job that I am not the most fond of because I know it’s a temporary situation.
That expectation continues to drive my desire to stay up all hours of the night, listing people I want to connect with, drafting emails to share my vision, and revamping proposals for IMANEE because I know that I am building something bigger than myself.
It’s my expectation for God to do something through my that has allowed me to continuously strive to speak and think only positivity because I am aware that “so as a WOMAN thinketh, so is she.”
My expectation is powerful because I know my purpose is powerful. I made a promise to myself to keep expecting more because God will always give us more than we can think or imagine.
Peace and Love!
