Expectations affect how we get along in life.  Whether good things or bad we expect things every day.  And how those expectations affect us depend largely upon our knowledge of the subject.  That bleeds over in our spiritual life too.

Our expectations of God affect how we grow spiritually.

If we expect things of God that God never promised we develop misconceptions of God.  And when God fails to meet our expectations we begin to get a cynical attitude. 

So it is increasingly important to grow in our knowledge of God, to look beyond what we already know to be true and see where God is active beyond our current understanding.

I have found it true in my own life that when I look beyond the boundaries of my thinking, God is already ahead of me and has been urging me to follow him for a long time.

Peace and encouragement
