I noticed that someone read a post I wrote about Expectations in December today. It’s funny how a word would go through my mind, and then I would see someone else was thinking of the same word.
Monday, I got up late. Okay, I admit I laid in bed late with a million thoughts going through my mind, when God cut through them with, “Take a walk.” I got dressed with the thought, “just walk.” I almost had my shoes on when thoughts started going through my mind again. God cut through them again, “just walk, no expectations.” I made it out the door and to the main road with part of a verse in my mind “–take every thought captive (2 Cor. 10:5) —- walk, no expectations.” As I walked, I started talking to God which wasn’t easy to do because I’m a little bit out of practice verbally talking to God. It’s not exactly a prayer. About a quarter of the way to town God enter into my mind again, “Have the expectation of me walking with you this moment.” I could feel the presence of Jesus with me.
Sometimes we need to move all the clutter out of our minds to make room for God to enter.
2nd Cor. 10:5, “We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”
If you are wondering about my post Expectations, I still pray throughout the week for the Holy Spirit to touch and move hearts with the sermon on Sunday including my heart. I also pray for my church leaders especially my pastor and his wife and any other person that comes to mind.
May God Bless you and bring peace to you.
