There comes a time in every believer’s life that we must choose – to believe or not believe what God says. There comes a time where we will challenge the Word and the Holy Spirit. I had a moment this morning. In the natural my ankle is killing me. I overdid it unloading a trailer and making room in the garage for our temperamental van. I am part Bionic Woman now with a Titanium leg bone. I wrote about what happened here – THE WORD HEALS
But in the Spirit – I see myself dancing. And teaching kids to praise dance. That would be fun. Yeah, makes no logical sense. I have been to PT – 3 times now. In the natural I have a hard time standing for more than 30 minutes at a time. I haven’t had a job in almost 3 years. Yet, I want to dance.
When my husband asked me how I was doing today I did not answer with my mind or my body. I was sort of sarcastic and said, ” I am stupendous. I’ll be dancing ballet today.” He laughed. That just egged me on more! Later he asked if I was dancing Swan Lake. I answered, “No I’m not feeling that today.” He said, “Oh more of The Nutcracker?.” “YES! that’s what I’ll be dancing later today!” I answered.
I’m tired of my stupid leg stopping me from doing what I want to do. I don’t know ballet, but I would learn a move or two. I haven’t run in almost 3 years now. But the Word says, “By His stripes I am healed.” So ok Holy Spirit – I am stepping out in faith. And talking about all the things I will do once you heal me Lord.
I will run, I will dance, I will ride a bike, and I will wear a pair of high heels again!
I am reading Steve Sampsons book again.
THOSE WHO EXPECT NOTHING ARE NEVER DISAPPOINTED, Let My Spirit Move
“In order to see God do more, we must live with a continual demand on His presence.” ~Steve Sampson
“There must not only be a posture of expectation, but a willingness on our part to submit our analytical minds to the flow of the Holy Spirit. It is the mind of man (not the devil) that aborts the work of the Spirit in our lives. When God speaks, He calls forth results that have nothing to do with our natural circumstances.” ~Steve Sampson
God’s Word for You:
Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. ~Hebrews 11:1 AMP
Wait and listen, everyone who is thirsty! Come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Yes, come, buy [priceless, spiritual] wine and milk without money and without price [simply for the self-surrender that accepts the blessing]. ~Isaiah 55:1 AMP
My Prayer for You:
We believe you – all of it, every Word. We expect you Lord to do what you say you will. We trust you to do it. Just because you love us. Thank you in advance Lord! Let it be so, in Jesus Name.
Points to Ponder:
- What if our EXPECTATION was the currency that God uses? It’s not money – Isaiah said we could come and buy without money.
- What if we believed what the Spirit said even if we didn’t see it in the natural yet?
- What if we believed before we saw it, and just said it anyway?
- What words do you need to change?
- What have we got to loose? Get sassy today – speak it, and watch and see what God will do!

This is still true – I will run and dance and wear high heels!
Hey, I like your sassy self! I love expecting from God. Just being open to His will. Continuing to plug along, moving forward, never saying, “No.” Some days, I don’t get much accomplished; other days, I run like the wind. For me, it’s the journey. The end result is all in God’s timing. 🙂
That is so true Susan. Just yesterday I didnt really do anything, and Rest was good. Ill enjoy the journey like you said – yes!
Beautiful words of God!!
