Hold on to your expectation; that's where God begins His work. God may not always give you what you ask or expect, but He'd ensure you get something that will settle the things you expect. The crippled man at the Beautiful gate really needed alms, just as many people really need a job, a house, a car, a good business, and even a spouse. And the fact that he really needed alms made it his only expectation from people who passed by. His mind was too enclosed to see that he could be healed and set free from begging alms. He just held on to his expectation.
We later saw in scriptures that the crippled man was not given alms as he expected, rather, he was given hands and legs, so that he can work and make enough money to even give alms to those who may need them. This means that if you won't give up on God for the job you're expecting from Him, He may eventually make you an employer of labour. I perceive that sometimes our expectations are way too small for God; how would you explain the fact that someone was begging for money but was empowered to make money instead?
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; DON'T CUT OFF YOUR EXPECTATIONS BECAUSE GOD WILL NOT. PRAY ON, FAITH ON, WAIT ON, GOD IS WORKING ON SOMETHING. Have a most fruitful week! In Jesus precious name!
