The Promises of Blessing (4 of 5)
We're feeling the Spirit of God breathing freshness into our spirit, a new wind of expectation. Jesus said, ''The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but I give you real life, more and better life than you ever dreamed of.'' I expect that life. I expect good and very good things to come my way. When I pray, I expect something to happen. When I give, I expect something to happen. Do you have that expectation? The promises of God for you are real promises from a true and living God! Believe. Have faith. Lift your eyes. The blessings that come upon the generous giver are many and amazing.
