God has established the law of expectation. That law is we tend to get what we expect out of life. We see what we expect to see. We feel what we expect to feel. For the most part, we act what we expect to act. We achieve what we expect to achieve. Our expectations influence all of our lives. It influences our happiness, our health, our marriage, our careers, our relationships, our abilities.
God tells us in Matthew 9:29 that we get to choose how much God blesses our lives. We choose how much we get to experience in life. We choose the limits that we set for ourselves.
So many times we choose to focus on what we don’t want instead of what we do want.
So the question is, What are you expecting? What are you expecting from life?
My son Jacob plays for North Cobb and this Friday night they have to go play McEachern at McEachern. I have been a football team chaplain since 1999. One think I have learned is that there is a big difference in teams who show up hoping to win and those who expect to win. Teams that expect to win always finds a way to win. They have a different mentality than those who show up hoping to win.
Expecting the best does three things in our life.
Marlon how can I increase my faith. How can I up my expectations.
Remember this month Love Does is Operation Christmas Child. Please grab your shoe box in the east hall this Sunday. What a great gift. With hurricane Matthew blowing through and causing destruction, one of these shoe boxes will bring so much hope.
