What did you expect?

What did you expect?

“The closer our expectations are confined to God, the higher our expectations may be raised”

Matthew Henry: from The Treasury of David, notes on Psalm 125

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence, for my hope is from him (Psalm 62:5)

  • What are my expectations for the day, week, month, year ahead?
  • How much do I rely on the love of God?
  • How many of my hopes for the future are based on what I can do or what others can do for me?
  • If faith is of more worth than gold how rich am I in faith?
  • Where is my hope?
  • Am I filled with vain daydreams or are my expectations confined to the all-powerful, all loving, all-knowing, ever-present God?
  • Am I prepared to wait in silence for God to reveal Himself?
