"But as for me, I will look to the Lord and confident in Him I will keep watch; I will wait with hope and expectancy for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me." (Micah 7:7 AMPC)

Some questions to consider as you get up:

  • Who are you looking to?

  • Where and in what, is your confidence and expectancy placed?

  • Who are you watching?

  • Where is your hope directed?

The Word tells us that we should look to the Lord confidently, trusting Him. In other words, patiently wait for God. He wants our confidence, hope, and expectancy to be in Him, and not use our own efforts, wisdom, or understanding. Our resources, without Him, are limited. Our sight is blind. Our reasoning lacks Kingdom understanding. Our ways and thoughts are not like His ways and thoughts.

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts." (Isaiah 55:8‭-‬9 NLT)

When we are connected to God, He will show us His ways and thoughts while teaching us how to walk in them. Connection is key.

If you're ready to truly surrender to His ways, pray this prayer:

Lord, I am looking to You with confident expectancy. I will keep watch. I will wait with hope and expectancy in You. I know You hear me. I cease my efforts and turn my every hope, desire, and dreams to You. My hope is in You and in the work, You are doing in me and will do through me.

You raised Jesus from the dead and I trust You to raise me from the dead and remove dead things from my life. Because I trust You and have faith in You, my eyes are on You to perform Your Word in my life. I am Word led, Word fed, and Word dependent. In all things I will trust You. I surrender all to You.

In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen, and it is so!

To God be the glory! Hallelujah!

Be Encouraged! ❤
