“In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.”
Psalm 5:3, NIV
Notice that in today’s Scripture David didn’t just pray and say, “Okay, God, I did my part.” He prayed and then waited with expectation. He had his hopes up. He went through the day looking for God’s goodness, talking like it was going to happen. He expected God’s favor. He said, “Surely goodness and mercy will follow me everywhere I go.”
When you pray, you have to follow it up with expectancy, with a knowing that the Creator of the universe has gone to work because He is a faithful God. What He promised you, He will bring to pass. You may have been waiting for a long time, but down in your spirit you have to have a resolve, a confidence: “I know the answer is on the way. I know the miracle is in motion. I’ve asked according to God’s will. I know He’s heard me. It’s just a matter of time before it shows up.”
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, thank You that everything You’ve promised me will be released in my life because You are faithful. Thank You that You hear my prayers and the answers are on the way. I am looking for Your goodness and believing for Your favor today. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
