What are you expecting in 2023?
Expect - To wait for; To look for; (Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary)
Habakkuk’s prayer, after his eyes are opened, expectant and confident:
“O LORD my God, my Holy One, you who are eternal—surely you do not plan to wipe us out? O LORD, our Rock, you have sent these Babylonians to correct us, to punish us for our many sins. But you are pure and cannot stand the sight of evil. Will you wink at their treachery? Should you be silent while the wicked swallow up people more righteous than they?” (Habakkuk 1:12-13 NLT)
O Lord, my God, You are the Holy One, who is eternal. You are my Rock and I am leaning on You, while seeking Your direction for my life. I trust You with the outcome. I come with expectation and anticipation that I will hear from You for my situation. You are pure. I know You won’t be silent when I call.
Expect God to show up in every area of your life in 2023:
“Be brave. Be strong. Don’t give up. Expect God to get here soon.” (Psalms 31:24 MSG)
Let 2023 be the year that we never forget just how much God loves us:
“May the Master take you by the hand and lead you along the path of God’s love and Christ’s endurance.” (II Thessalonians 3:5 MSG)
Hear the voice of God saying to us as His Body and to each of us individually:
(YOUR NAME), out looking for a place to rest, met God out looking for them!" God told (YOUR NAME), "I've never quit loving you and never will. Expect love, love, and more love! And so now I'll start over with you and build you up again, dear (YOUR NAME) (Jeremiah 31:3-4 MSG)
"Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]." (Ephesians 3:20 AMPC)
Nothing like anticipation and expectation. They don't tell time or look at calendars. They are just ready to take you to the next level!
So, what are you expecting this year?
Be Encouraged! ❤
