Have Great Expectations of God.


What do you imagine God thinks of you right now?  Jeremiah 29:11 declares God loves you and has plans to prosper you.  The King James Version says it this way: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil; to give you an expected end.

What kind of an end would you like to have?  The NIV says that He wants to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  How do you see your future in God right now?  Do you see yourself under this plan for a brighter future, or do you feel like you’re missing a piece of that puzzle?

Our imagination has a lot to do with how we perceive the character of God’s love.  Genesis 6:5 said that the imaginations of men’s hearts were evil from their youth up.  Our expectations are bred in our imagination.  God loves us more than we can ever know in this life, but if we allow our imagination to be guided by our flesh, we will always be fearful.  In the flesh it is impossible to please God, and our perceptions of others will also probably fall short of where God wants them to be.    

That’s why Romans 12:12 said to be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  You must renew your mind on a daily basis. Also, Ephesians 5:26 talks about washing of water by the word.  You must wash your brains. Brainwashing is paramount in the Christian lives.  Sanctify your imagination.  Turn off unclean TV and internet programming and turn on something inspirational.

You will have less anger toward others and more confidence in your prayers if you cleanse that little area of your brain called imagination, and added inspiration to write better poetry and prose. If you are a born again son or daughter of God, the desires of your heart are the ones He put there.  Don’t believe that?  Read Jeremiah 29:11 the way it was written. 

He wants to bring your life to fruition in Him.   Of course it may not mean you’ll be rich beyond measure in this world’s goods.  They are passing away, pretty quickly now days.  God’s promises are meant to make you a showcase of His grace, honor and glory…
