WATCH EXPECTANTLY FOR GOD

WATCH EXPECTANTLY FOR GOD

Micah 7:7 (NASB) But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me.

Our God hears us, and we hear Him.  Each day, as we hunger for Him, His Word declares that we will be filled.  I have found that there is living for God, and then there is watching expectantly for the Lord.  When we show God a hunger and a thirst for Him, it changes everything.

James said in James 5:16, ”The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”  Prayer is good, but effective, fervent prayer is a whole lot better. 

David was a man hungry for God.  He said throughout the Psalms that He thirsted for God like a deer; that He desired God more than His food, and more than silver or gold.  It is when we get hungry like this that we see how our relationship with God changes.  Remember, God does not change, WE DO!

The woman with the issue of blood said, “I am going to touch Him, no matter what.”  Jarius came to Jesus, and it did not matter what everybody else thought.  His daughter was dying, and he heard that Jesus was a healer, so He pushed through and got His prayer answered.

Now how about us?  Are we watching expectantly for the Lord?  Do we desire Him more than food and the riches of this world?  If we do, then look out!  Our God will hear us, and if we know that He hears us, we know that we have the petitions that we have come to Him for.

I do not know about you, but the thing that I desire more than anything is Him!

Confession:  I desire God, and I am hungry for Him.  He is my life, and my portion.  I want Him more than the wealth of this world, and I know if I seek Him, I will be found by Him.
