Releasing Expectations To God

"Put your expectations on God, not on people."
Joyce Meyer

Podcast: ICB24 (7:08)

For years I lived and tried to succeed off of what others expected of me.  Then, I decided to live by what I expected.  Let me tell you neither way worked for me.  That was a complete set up for FAILURE and when I crashed I crashed HARD.  I've learned a very important lesson within these past three years of my life.  I learned that what others outside of God expected of me never truly mattered.  I also learned that my way (my expectations) were harming me both mentally and physically.  But, the greatest lesson learned was if I surrendered to God and allowed him to take the lead I could bare witness to his wonders.

Daily I surrender and expect God to take the lead.  I no longer place unrealistic expectations upon myself.  Instead, I ask him "what is it you wish (expect) me to do today Father?"  When I quiet my chaotic mind and meet with him in prayer he shows me his expectations for that day.  He never shows me weeks, months or years down the line.  He is very realistic!  He gets that we humans can only handle things day by day and so, that is how he operates with me.  He frees me from stress, anger, hurt and disappointment by doing this.  I expect to be joyful, glad, happy, kind, compassionate, successful and blessed.  I expect all of these things not by what man says, but by what His Words tell me.  I know through Him, through surrendering each day in total Faith I WILL be granted these things.  I place my expectations in the palm of His hands and He blesses me.  I expect nothing more than what He has to offer me and THAT is all I need in this life.  --God Bless
