Confident Expectation

What would you have me do with you?

Do I not use the simple things of this world to confound the wise. It is not that your workings will be simple, but that they are imparted by Me which makes the whole difference.

None can move you, none can demean you, none can thwart you for this work is sanctioned by Me. I give you means, strength, and wisdom to stand in what I’ve placed in your heart to do. I give you the ability to see with new perspective and insight into My wisdom.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 (AMP)

“Thus says the Lord, ‘blessed is the man who believes and trusts in and relies on the Lord and whose hope and confident expectation is the Lord. For he will be like a tree planted by the waters, that spreads out its roots by the river; and will not fear the heat when it comes; but its leaves will be green and moist. And it will not be anxious and concerned in a year of drought nor stop bearing fruit.'”

I Corinthians 1:26-29 (NKJV)

“For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.”
