Bible in a Year (pt.14) – Living Expectantly

Joshua 3:5 says; “Then Joshua told the people; purify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do great wonders among you.” – Can you imagine living with that kind of expectancy? Can you imagine living life knowing that tomorrow God would do great wonders?

I don’t know about you, but that’s how I want to live! Because the truth is, God is doing great wonders around us all the time. He’s changing lives, drawing people unto Himself, meeting needs, healing the sick, providing for the poor, mending the broken and moving in His Church. The wonders never cease…I just think we miss them sometimes.

Think about it…We sing His praises expecting Him to hear. We serve faithfully expecting Him to be glorified. We give of our time, talent and resources expecting Him to use those things for His purposes. We study His Word, expecting to learn and be changed. We share our faith expecting God to intervene in a persons life. We wake up, expecting God to help us breathe.

As Christ Followers, we should always live expectantly. Not just here and there, but every moment of everyday. God loves to “show up” for His people. He longs to work wonders around us. Expect it!

  1. This post and the last one (What if?) are so very inspirational and motivational! Thanks so much for stirring up things for me in this way. God is so great and we do have so very much to anticipate from Him, every day. To live life fully believing this truth would be a celebration of who God is and that’s the way I want to live!

  2. Jim,
