Expect God to Do Something Great

- by Joyce Meyer

The Lord wants us to expect Him to do great things for us. He wants us to watch with an attitude of faith to see how He will come through on our behalf and help us defeat the enemy.

As Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah followed God’s battle plan, the Lord delivered them from their enemies. How did they defeat their enemies? When Jehoshaphat appointed singers to sing and praise at the head of Judah’s army, the Lord defeated their enemies by confusing them so much that they killed each other! (See 2 Chronicles 20:22.)

When you are faced with a battle and you don’t know what to do, I encourage you to follow the battle plan God gave Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah.

First, seek God for encouragement and guidance. Next, acknowledge your dependence on Him to help you. Third, take your position—worshiping God and giving Him thanks. Finally, watch and expect God to move on your behalf.

Remember, the battle belongs to the Lord! As you seek and worship Him, you will not only be in a position to win your battles, but also to enjoy your walk with Him and your everyday life more than ever.

Prayer Starter: Thank You, Father, that You give me the strength to keep fighting. I am grateful that You are always with me and that You fight my battles with me. In Your Name I pray, Amen.
