Revival of a Rose: EXPECT

Revival of a Rose: EXPECT

Revival of a Rose: EXPECT

There is something powerful about having a spirit of expectancy. It’s one of the greatest proclamations of faith declaring God is undeniably going to move while you’re patiently awaiting for it to come through. 

Expectancy isn’t what you already see in front of you. 
Expectancy also isn’t waiting to believe unless you start to see circumstances change for you. 

Expectancy is EXPECT[TO SEE]. 

You can expect a revival because it came from a promise that He makes all things new (Rev. 21:5)

You can expect healing because of His power to rescue. (Ps 107:20)

You can expect a purpose behind your story because He will use it for good and His Glory. (Gen. 50:20)

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve recognized the importance of releasing our guard-petals (things unlike Christ), pursuing obedience to keep them at bay, seeking Jesus by surrendering them so He can come through, and now with full expectancy believe revival is coming for you. 

Just like a rose whose guard petals were removed and then led to a full bloom, it’s now YOUR time to expect beauty to blossom through.

"And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast." 1 Peter 5:10 (NIV)

Scripture tells us we will endure suffering, but it is all temporary. Some of our “temporaries” may be longer than others or come at even greater depths/seasons of pain. 

But His promises remain the same. 

You will develop a strength you’ve yet to know, be unmovable because of your unshakeable God, and will be restored to use for His glory and become a beautiful revival story. @rhiannamarie24

Lord Jesus, we thank you for the gift of giving to live life with a spirit of expectancy. We thank you that it is because of your faithful promises that we get to be and stay free. Give us eyes that continuously look unto you and ones that expect to see, in faith, all of the beautiful miracles you’ll do. Thank you for giving us hope and a future. In your name we pray, Amen.

Letting go of my “boast list”
Letting go of my “boast list”

April 10, 2024

Turns out that like Paul, I’m not as “good” as my spiritual “boast list” makes me appear. I had misunderstood the beauty of the gospel- that salvation is based solely on the goodness of God, not the goodness of me. It is God’s grace that produces good works in us, not the other way around. Friend, let this truth dissolve any stock we have in our ability to produce a spiritual “boast list.” It’s been a humbling journey to let go of my “boast list,” but the grace of Jesus is so much better to h...
