EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED

After being in particular situation for a long time, human nature tends to settle into that situation. You tend to operate within the financial limits of your situation. You tend to accommodate the physical pain you can remove. You accept what you can’t change.

But God who is rich in grace and mercy has intended to spring you out of that situation regardless of how long you have been there. God is not limited by your situation or your experience. He is God regardless of your strength or lack thereof.

That is why I encourage you to expect the unexpected. Raise your faith in God and expect Him to surprise you. There is nothing too difficult for God. Not even you can stop certain blessings from the Lord. Lift your heart, raise your faith and lift your eyes. The unexpected is around the corner for you. Expect the Unexpected in Jesus’ name.

SCRIPTURE READING: John 5:1-9 After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep [Gate] a pool, which is called in Hebrew, Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had. Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been [in that condition] a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?” The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.” Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked. And that day was the Sabbath.

DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I lift my heart and raise my faith for the unexpected, amen.
