Expect good things from God.

JUL. 9, 2024

Expect good things from God.

"Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you." Isa 30:18 NKJV

Your concept of God determines your confidence in approaching Him. 

  • Do you always view Him like an auditor, and your books don't balance? 

  • Or do you view Him like a father who loves you at all times and wants to be good to you? 

When approaching God, many of us consult a mental scorecard to see whether we have 

  • more wins than losses, 

  • rights than wrongs, 

  • credits than demerits. 

If we feel like we're not performing well, we avoid God or make Him our last resort. That's a mistake because God sees you "in Christ" (2Co 5:17), and therefore, you are always accepted and welcomed into His presence. You say, "Does that mean I can live any way I please?" No, "the Lord disciplines the one he loves" (Heb 12:6 NIV). 

But His correction is not rejection; it's proof that you are truly His redeemed child. Here is a Scripture you need to meditate on: "Therefore the Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you; and therefore He lifts Himself up, that He may have mercy on you and show loving-kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are all those who [earnestly] wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him [for His victory, His favor, His love, His peace, His joy, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!" (Isa 30:18 AMPC). 

Note God's attitude toward you today: "The Lord [earnestly] waits [expecting, looking, and longing] to be gracious to you." Keep that picture in mind, and begin to expect good things from God.
