There are many great and historic stories of people who had expectations of greatness which could only be obtained by their investment in others.
When Isabella the Queen of Spain underwrote Columbus exploratory journey, she had dreams of great wealth returning to her country. Her expected wealth of gold was not realized; instead she was instrumental in discovering the New World for which we are all grateful.
When the single mother of a young man bought him a dictionary and told him to study it every day she had great expectation for him, but little did she realize that this would change his life to the extent that it did. He began to excel at school, went on to college and today is a world renowned neurosurgeon.
When The Father Elohim, the Creator created Adam and Eve He had plans for them to succeed. They were to take dominion, multiply and fill the earth. His pre-determined plan then and now was for His offspring to live a good life. [Ephesians 2:10].
God was not disappointed in His Only Begotten Son Jesus Christ because He completed his earthly mission. He ‘did shrink from the horrors of separation from the bright presence of His Father….and ‘although He was a Son, He learned obedience through what he suffered’. [Hebrews 5:7-9].
In Christ’s determination to bring many sons to glory he suffered untold horrors at the hands of his torturers. As a result there was a glorious Resurrection and His defeat of death. We are no longer under bondage to the law. We have His abundant grace.
We are God’s great expectations; his children bought out of bondage wearing crowns. We are a holy nation, a glorious church, and the Body and Bride of Christ. Our destiny is to overcome; to overcome an enemy who is a serpent turned dragon. [Rev 1:6].
I am so grateful to my Father God and to Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. I am joyful that I was created with great expectations for a successful life. [Jeremiah 29:11].
He planned for me to be loved, to prosper, to have His Holy Spirit, to worship Him, to be fruitful, to live in holiness, to be one with Jesus Christ, and to be an ‘Overcomer’.
It will be accomplished.
