According to an online dictionary here is the difference between the two words.
Expectancy is defined as the state of thinking or hoping that something, especially something pleasant, will happen or be the case.
Anxiety is defined as a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.
Now ask yourself as you are waiting on your breakthrough are you truly expecting a pleasant outcome or are you uneasy everyday and wonder why hasn’t it happened for you it minute by minute?
You see if your trust is truly in God and you truly believe the scripture in which Jesus was talking to His disciples and preparing them for His departure and transformation. Scripture reads “ whatsoever you ask the Father in my name, He will give it to you. Hither to you have asked nothing in my name. Ask and ye SHALL receive that YOUR JOY may be FULL.
These are the words that Jesus spoke. Do you believe Him or do you think He was only talking about some people and some prayers? Do you really TRUST and believe in His words? His words are life and light unto our path.
You have to examine your heart and mind and be sure your faith is in your heart and not just your mind and that any brief bursts of doubt should be in your mind briefly and never leak into your heart.
You just may find that you are the only catalyst holding up your answered prayers. From this moment on wait on your blessings with expectancy and never anxiety. Believe believe believe in the outcome that will bring you great joy and in which God alone gets total glory!
Expect Rest Receive Rejoice!
