What Are You Expecting?
…sickness to return?
…children to go deeper into sin?
…your spouse to have an affair or be in bondage to pornography?
Are you expecting the worst?
Or are you expecting God to fulfill His promise to you?
Check your heart.
… if you discover the weed of doubt and negativity, pull it out through repentance.
“Plow up the hard ground of your hearts! Do not waste your good seed among thorns. Jer. 4:3 (NLT)
Start EXPECTING …
…a committed spouse.
…bondages to be broken.
…your needs met.
…blessings to chase after you.
Expect God’s Answer!
Death and life are in the power of the tongue… Proverbs 18:21
