Expectations Up! – A Word by Kim Potter

I have shared with you recently how God spoke to me about the fall season and seeing answered prayers – I still believe that.

In my heart, I have such a wonderful excitement for October.  I don’t know why.  I have no logical or natural reason why – yet that feeling remains. 


I heard someone say this week; “Faith sees, hope feels, love never fails.”


I love that saying.  It explained so much.  I knew faith sees – I know full well, I can’t receive my promise until I see it with my spiritual eyes.  Norvel Hayes taught me that.  But I had never thought about hope – hope feels. 


That is what I am sensing today – I am feeling expectation.  That is my hope speaking.  This is hope arising.  The Bible says, “Hope never fails.”


As I was pondering all this today, I remember something the Lord once spoke to me.  I had been talking with a friend, sharing something good that happened, when I made the statement, “I wasn’t expecting that.”


As soon as those word came out of my mouth, God spoke to me, He said, “Then…get your expectation up!!!”


In the Websters 1828 dictionary, expectation is defined as; “the act or expecting or looking forward to a future event with at least some reason to believe the event will happen.  Expectation differs from hope.  Hope originates in desire with little or no ground to believe the desired thing will take place.  Expectation is founded on some reasons which render the even probably…”


I love that!  We have ground to believe…it is the word of God.  That is our reason to render our expectation probable.  The promises of God.  Therefore, we have a blood bought right to expect…not simply wish it would happen…but EXPECT the promises of God to manifest in our life.


As I shared with my friend, I told her I have been confessing scripture about daily blessings coming to me on a daily basis.  However, I wasn’t expecting them.  Isn’t that sad?! 


Now, God has said, “GET YOUR EXPECTATIONS UP!!!”


Psalm 62:5 says; “My soul waits only for God, for my expectation is from Him.”


I love this scripture in Psalm 40:5; “O Lord, our God, no one can compare with You.  Such wonderful works and miracles are all found with you!  And you think of us all the time with Your countless expressions of love – far exceeding our expectations!”  (Passion Translation)


That is what God desires to pour out on you and I today; countless expressions of His love, far exceeding our expectations.  Isn’t that amazing!?


The Bible says God daily loads us with His benefits?  Are you experiencing it? If not, are you expecting to be daily loaded with all His benefits?  The Bible says we will receive according to our faith.  Do you have faith to believe for daily benefits from God?  Are you believing for countless expressions of His love on a daily basis? 


I must say, I was not.  I was seeing small things that were unexpected.  Now that I have been told to get my expectations up…I am doing just that.  I am expecting to see His benefits poured out in my life on a daily basis.  I am expected to be, as the Bible says, DAILY…LOADED with His benefits.  I am expecting that for you as well.


Today, my friend, get your expectation up!  WAAAYYYY UP!  Up as high as you can get it. 


Expect His daily benefits.  Expect to be showered every single day with expressions of His love.  Expect His blessings to be poured out upon you this week in a mighty way.  Expect His promises to be manifest in your life…we have every reason for expectation…we have His word.  And He do not lie.


Meditate on this:


“Know the importance of the season you are in.”  Proverbs 10:5
