Great Expectations

Great Expectations

Last night I spent a few hours with my daughter helping her read the dramatic novel, Great Expectations, written by Charles Dickens.  We read to the point where Pip, the main character, receives word that a benefactor has given him a large sum of money and he can become the gentleman he has always desired to be.  He is told by the messenger that ‘great expectations’ have been given him and he needed to immediately begin this new life.

I woke up this morning with the words ‘great expectations’ floating across my mind.  I also have been given a new life because I have surrendered my life to Christ.  He paid a great price for me and has an amazing future planned for me and for all who call upon His name and believe in Him.  The question that kept coming to mind was, “How many of us really believe that God is giving us permission to have great expectations in this life?   Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now to Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”  Oh how I pray we grasp this promise of God over our lives, that with Him all things are possible, that before the foundations of the earth He created us with an amazing future and that His power works with in us to accomplish it all.  He is truly a God of great expectations because He has done everything to make it possible for us to do more than we could ever think or imagine.

Wake Up Media’s motto is:
“Wake Up!
To Know God,
Who HE is,
Who YOU are,

Ask God what great things He has for you that you can’t even think of or imagine.  Seek Him and know Him.  He is the key that will unlock those great things hidden in each of you.  There is so much more in each of us than we will ever know, but He will unveil and reveal it to us as we pursue Him.  Expect great things from our great God.  Oh how He loves you!
