Expectations

You Can Win!, Roger F. Campbell, 1985, SP Publications, pp. 10-11.

Most of us do not accomplish much because we do not expect to accomplish very much. A. B. Simpson indicated the majority of us when he said, "Our God has boundless resources. The only limit is in us. Our asking, our thinking, our praying are too small. Our expectations are too limited." J. Hudson Taylor observed, "Many Christians estimate difficulties in the light of their own resources, and thus attempt little and often fail in the little they attempt."
