There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!
Romans 5:3-5 (MSG)
The power of anticipation fuels our ability to see possibilities in our problems that opens us up to vision, a plan of action that empowers us to endure our problems with a determination of overcoming and flourishing. Anticipation, the spirit of expectancy, creates space within our circumstances in which we can see our expected end and as a result strategize toward that which would produce that which we desire. Releasing within and subsequently without a spirit of expectancy transforms our space, including our thought-life and energy toward that which will bring us to a place of flourishing. By no means do I suggest that trying to see in the darkness of your experiences is easy, it is not, however, the spirit of what you believe should be controlling, brings about a necessary shift in your thought-life and energy, and when ignited, fuels your actions forward to flourish. We are truly alive when we allow the spirit within us to spring forth and the pressures of our problems, circumstances are necessary to press out of us that which is us, spirit, which cannot be contained or smothered by structures or systems, including people, places, and things. Wherever you are, allow your spirit to come out and in it you will move beyond what is to what should be, released from the confines of the world to that of the spirit realm where you are free to flow in that which should be for your life. Remember, you have access to God in the spirit and as you seek to release your spirit to ignite with Him, from whence you came, you Receive power to produce evidence of that which should be, that which has been promised for your life and life more abundantly. Catch The Wind of God’s Spirit and Receive your promise, inheritance, not because you deserve it out right but because you are willing and determined in your problems to diligently pursue that which cause you to flourish, be free to anticipate and thus, Receive!
