Does God Exceed Your Expectations?
Good morning beautiful people. I was thinking this morning how God has answered my many prayers, beyond my expectation. I like to plan and figure things out, but that is not always God’s way. He simply tells us to come to him and take his yoke upon us and learn from him, for he is gentle and humble in heart, and we will find rest for our souls. For his yoke is easy and his burden is light. (Matthew 11:29-30)
He also tells us not to worry about tomorrow for tomorrow has enough worries of it’s own. (Matthew 6:34) Our position must be to stay in faith believing for whatever we have need of. His ways are higher than our ways, and his thoughts are much higher than our thoughts. (Isaiah 55:9) Sometimes we limit God or should I say sometimes I limit God with small thinking when he really wants to show himself higher than what I asked. I tell him frequently Jesus I am letting you out of the box. Before you know it, I have him boxed in again. I continually find myself letting Jesus out of the box. What about you? Do you limit him? Do you question how he is going to work everything out? Do you keep him limited in the parameters of your box? What size is your box? Are you ready to kick the sides out of your box once again?
Father, thank you that as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are your ways higher.
Father, we submit every plan to you. Limitless Jesus have your way. We want your agenda, your plan, not of our own making but truly from your throne room. You know where we need to be, what we need to do and how everything should be done. We desire your will, oh God.
Father, thank you for enlarging our territories. You make our feet like the feet of a deer; causing us to stand on the heights. (Psalm 18:33) There are no limits to your resources or your blessings.
Father, forgive us for putting you in a box. Today, we open our hearts and minds to the believe that all things are possible because of your great love towards mankind. We ask you to order our footsteps and show yourself as limitless Jesus in our lives. Amen.
Have a blessed day God’s beautiful people. He will never fail you, but exceed your expectations. Believe.
