GREAT EXPECTATIONS                                                Mark 5:24-29

“For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish forever.” (Palm 9:18)

As the poor in spirit, God assures believers that their expectations will be realized (Psalm 9:18) (memorise verse) Nevertheless, only the poor who have expectations can experience a better future, because their expectations will come to pass. The good news for you today is that your expected miracle is nearer to you than you can ever imagine. When the woman with the issue of blood heard that the Great Physician was in her neighbourhood she pressed through the crowd to meet Him with great expectations of miraculous healing. She expected and believed that Jesus would do for her what the physicians could not do, and so she found her way to Jesus and touched the hem of His garment. “And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague” (Mark 5:29) Beloved, what do you expect from the Lord today? How great is your expectation? Trust in the Lord like this woman did, and your expectation will not perish. This was also the testimony of the lame man at the gate of the temple (Acts 3:1-8) He had great expectations, but as God would have it, he got more than he bargained for. Indeed, his expectation was the foundation for the miracle he experienced. Acts 3:5 says “And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.” Are you expecting something from the Lord today? In Proverbs 23:17-18, the Lord says to you. “Let not thou heart envy sinners, but be thine in the Fear of the LORD… thine expectation shall not be cut off.

PRAYER LINE: Father, please don’t let my great expectations be cut short in Jesus’ Name (O.H)
