“He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he hath sent empty away.”
Expectation is one thing we all need to access the grace or help of God. We need a hunger or desire! It is not enough to be present in church; you must have a desire to receive from God! When you go to a party, for instance, you may decide not to eat anything. Because of this, you may not enjoy anything at the party because of your decision. In the same way, when we come into the house of God, we must be hungry enough to receive from Him. Our meeting with Him will then be worthwhile! This is because God is looking for people who are hungry; those who have a strong desire.
In Mark 11:24, the Bible says, “…What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them].” This means that, once we have a desire, God will meet our desires. In Acts chapter 3, Peter healed a lame man at the gate of the temple. He was a professional beggar, plying his trade in front of the temple. This man did not join the service yet received a miracle. Meanwhile, there were people in the church who were faithful in their service to God; paying their tithe, singing worship songs, and praying but did not receive anything. This man was not there for the service; he was there for the money. There are people who go to church with different agendas. Some go because they have heard about a pretty lady in the church. Others go because they have got nice new clothes and need a place to display them. Apart from the fact that this man was there for the money, he had one thing going for him; desire.
In Act 3:5-6, the Bible says, “And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.” Because of that desire, the spirit of God moved and there was a miracle!
What are your expectations? Do you desire to be healed? Do you desire to marry? Are you believing God for a financial breakthrough or a good job? God will meet your desires. Get hungry and God will meet your desires!
