Perfected Expectation

Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge HIM, and HE will make straight your paths.

The LORD has been speaking to me the last couple of days about expectation. It would seem that this scripture may not directly relate to expectation at first glance. But it does.

Expectation means to have a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future.  How can you believe in someone you do not trust?  To believe that someone will keep a promise they made to you, they must be trustworthy. Their words must carry weight.  If someone makes you promises over and over again, yet they fail to ever carry through on them, then disappointment and doubt sets in. It is then unlikely that you would believe them at all.

I'm so grateful that GOD is faithful and always keeps HIS word. No matter what you are facing today, trust GOD. Follow the directions that HE has given to you and wait with expectation for HIM to keep HIS promises.
