What do you expect from the word of God? Your expectation is a function of what you know and understand of God’s word. And the word of God delivers to you what you expect from it; for your expectation shall not be cut off. Therefore, increase your expectation of the word of God to increase what it delivers to you.

For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off – Proverbs 23:18 (KJV).

My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh – Proverbs 4:20-22 (NKJV).

Introduction

There is so much to gain being saved, but they’re subject to your expectation on the word. However, many believing Christians are suffering and they get destroyed because of ignorance of what the Word offers them. Yet, the word of God is the life of a believer, for you live by the word. So, every believer must soak himself with God’s word and expect the Lord to confirm His word in his life to benefit from it.

Why You Must Increase Your Expectation On The Word Of God

1.You’re born and maintained by the word

Everything in this world, including you, was made by God’s word. And the Lord upholds His creation by the word of His power. So, if you want to operate at your best you must breathe and eat the word. This is because your spirit, soul and body will grow and respond maximally when you give them what they are made of; while any other intake will make them malfunction.

By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible – Hebrews 11:3 (NKJV).

Who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high – Hebrews 1:3 (NKJV).

2. The word of God is God.

In John 1:1, the scripture says that the word of God is God, and Acts 17:28 says that in God we live and move and have our being. This means that in God’s word, we live, move, and have our being. As such, you can’t do without the word of the Lord, if you want to function well.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God – John 1:1 (NKJV).

for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring – Acts 17:28 (NKJV).

3. There is power in the word of God

God is powerful and so is His word. Hence, what the Lord can do, His word can do likewise. For the word of the Lord is alive and powerful, and able to penetrate your spirit, soul, and body, and can discern your thoughts and intents of your heart. So, nothing in your life is hidden from the Word, and it can attend to every issue in your life. Therefore, give yourself to it, for it is life to those that find it and health to all their flesh.

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart – Hebrews 4:12 (NKJV).

My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; for they are life to those who find them, and health to all their flesh – Proverbs 4:20-22 (NKJV).

Increase Your Expectation On God’s Word

Therefore, study the word of the Lord, to learn more of God and His word. This will increase your expectation (Hope) of His word. And as the scripture says, your hope will not get cut off. Also, building up your hope will give your faith what to work on, for faith is the substance of things hoped for. This means that when you increase your expectation, you increase the number of things you expect the word of God to do in your life. As such, you increase your results, testimonies in life

For surely there is a hereafter, And your hope will not be cut off – Proverbs 23:18 (NKJV).

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen – Hebrews 11:1 (NKJV).

Exercise Your Faith In The Word

Faith is the substance of things hoped for. It’s acting on God’s Word. Therefore give substance to your expectation, don’t stop at hoping that God’s word will manifest in your life. Rather, go a step further to act on the word. This is to believe that you already have what you desire as the word says. So, to all your expectations, exercise your faith to receive your desires.

Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them – Mark 11:24 (NKJV).

Conclusion

It is therefore important that now you’re saved that you increase your expectation on the word of God by studying it. This will ensure that you receive and enjoy all your inheritance in Christ as a child of God. So, increasingly expect the Lord to fulfil His word in your life today.
