God Has Expectations



- God Has Expectations

"Happy are all who search for God and always do his will, rejecting compromise with evil and walking only in his paths." (Psalm 119:2-3 TLB)

As was said to the Marvel character, "With [the desire for] great power comes great responsibility". You see it's easy to shout "God is too Faithful to fail," but are you? Are you too faithful to fail Him? Everything Jesus came to do was to create a two way relationship. So, it is not about what God can do, it's about what God and you can do.

There's an expectation He has of you and that defines everything. Yes, He has blessed us with the free gift of grace, but to have grace work as intended, there is something He expects of us every day. And that is called faithful devotion.

Remember Hebrews 6:10, He will not forget you not because of what He has done, but because of your works and labour of love. There is a lifestyle He encourages you to put up to attract all the blessings He has declared yours. This is why prophecies are conditional. There is always an IF or UNLESS clause attached. Study Deuteronomy 28. But for today's devotion, let's consider Zechariah 6:15: "But none of this will happen unless you carefully obey the commandments of the Lord your God.” (TLB).

But God isn't worried about that because He knows you can meet the demand. Remember, you are different now. A typical human has a life source in the blood, but you have one in your spirit sponsored by His Spirit. So He is sure you can do it. And what are these? For a life of thorough peace, He tells us to rely on Him wholeheartedly (Isaiah 26:3), encouraging peace and mercy where we can (Matt 5:7-9). For a life of abundance, He tells us to be generous (Luke 6:38, 2 Cor 9:6-14) etc. In other words, there are secret Expectations to facilitate the possession of certain things with God. Moses knew this; that's why we are told he knew the ways of God while others only saw the acts. Therefore, today give yourself to know His ways, and as you follow it you will find your life turn around in that moment.
