I heard in the Spirit the phrase “Great Expectations of Great Blessings” for 2017.
“Beloved. Have you adopted the phrase, “Hope for the best, but expect the worst?”
My Dear Child, this should never be your way of thinking. It is My plan that in all the ages to come, you shall be shown and enjoy the exceeding RICHES of My Grace in My kindness toward you.
Align your expectations with Mine, Dear One. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Expect the BEST from your Abba Father.
Your hardship shall have an ending and your expectation of good things shall not be cut off. Expect and pray that My will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. I shall give you all things freely as I have given you My Son.
For this is My plan for you, My Child. Expect GOOD things from My Hand. My promises to you are Yes and Amen.
No good thing will I withhold from you. WHATSOEVER you ask in prayer, believing that you have received it, expecting it, you shall have it.
I AM not a man that I would lie, My Beloved. Expect that soon, I shall bring you forth also with silver and gold: and there shall not be one feeble person among you. For your citizenship is in Heaven and from it expect your Savior to come who will transform your lowly body to be like His glorious body.
The world will be glad when you depart for the fear of you has fallen upon them. Until then, you shall not be ashamed, Dear One, but with boldness, My Power shall be MAGNIFIED in your body. I shall bring forth My people with JOY and My Chosen with gladness.
No more sighing, My Warrior Bride. Expect to see My Goodness made manifest in the land of the living. Surely goodness and lovingkindness shall follow you all the days of your life, and you will dwell in the house of your LORD forever.
“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ … that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus,” Ephesians 2:4.“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end,” Jeremiah 29:11.
“For surely there is an end; and your expectation shall not be cut off,” Proverbs 23:18.
“According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death,” Philippians 1:20.
“But our citizenship is in Heaven, and from it we await (also translated expect) a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like His glorious body, by the power that enables Him even to subject all things to Himself,” Philippians 3:20-21.
