I am thankful for the spirit of expectation because it encourages me to bring my requests to you every morning and patiently wait for your answer, for you always hear me. Such as David the psalmist experienced in Psalm 5:3, which reads "Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait expectantly".
I am thankful for the spirit of expectation for it confirms to me the hope I have in you, which you have given me, as confirmed in Romans 8:24, which reads "We were given this hope when we were saved. (If we already have something, we don’t need to hope for it". And also gives me soul the assured confidence to wait patiently on you, such as the Psalmist explained in Psalms 62:5, which reads "My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him"
So today, Papa, I come to you with my basket full of thanksgiving and praise in thankfulness for the spirit of expectation you have created in me. I am thankful because it helps me to further anchor my hope and hang on to the faith I have in you. It helps me to patiently wait on you for answers to my prayers and for help. It helps me to realise that all my dreams and hopes can only and will be realised through you.
Papa, be honoured in my thanksgiving and glorified in my praises today. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL TO THE LORD FOR THIS VERY DAY?
