The woman with an issue of blood expected to be healed, and Jesus explained that her faith made her well. The first disciples expected the Master to keep his promise, and so they waited in Jerusalem to be empowered from on high; and indeed when the day of Pentecost had fully come they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. The Corinthian saints eagerly awaited the revelation of Jesus in their church, and Paul declared such expectation caused them to come short in no spiritual gift. 

    The Bible teaches us to expect the Lord to accomplish the great things of His will in our lives. What are you expecting the Lord to do in your life? Draw near, and expect Him to draw you even closer.
