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 would ensure you get something that will settle the things you expect. The crippled man at the Beautiful gate really needed alms from Peter and John, just as many people really need a job, a house, a car, a good business, or 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 even see that he could be healed and set free from begging alms. He just held on to his only 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 could work and make enough money to even give alms to those who may need them. This literally means that if you will not give up on God for the job you are 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 who was begging for money 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 day, in Jesus precious name
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
