The fragment of sermon "Expect Something Good!" 29 Jan. 2018 - Joyce Meyer (online). If you've been waiting on God to do something in your life, this video is for you! Be encouraged above. We need to expect something good to happen. Expect something good is going to happen. Things can change at any minute. I'm waiting patiently. To wait on the Lord means to look and long for him to show up at any minute. So, waiting on God is not just, like... There's an inner expectancy.
full text Expect Something Good! 29 Jan. 2018 - Joyce Meyer (sermon online)
Alright, James 5:7, "so, be patient brethren as you wait," please notice it doesn't say, "if you wait." I mean, you see that. "be patient as you wait till the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits," how? "expectantly. For the precious harvest from the lamb," now, this is important too, "see how he keeps up his patient vigil over it until it receives the early and the late rain." So, we all have a vigil that we need to keep up. I'm going to keep praying. I'm going to keep confessing the word. I'm going to keep studying the word. I'm going to keep getting with other good people that can keep me encouraged. I'm going to keep giving into kingdom work. I'm going to keep being a blessing everywhere that I go. I'm going to keep trusting God. I'm going to keep rebuking the devil.
Joyce Meyer: you say, "well, I didn't do that, I'm so tired of doing that." Well, can I ask you a question? Do you really have anything better to do? I mean, have you either got one small bright idea that would be any better than just continuing on with God? Your only other choice is going back where you came from. Who in the world wants to do that? If you made it this far don't go back where you started.
Joyce Meyer: come on, God is good. Amen?
Joyce Meyer: everybody say, "I'm going through!"
Audience: I'm going through!
Joyce Meyer: keep up your patient vigil. I love that. You see, a farmer plants seed, and he waters it, and he waters it, and he goes out every day and he pulls the weeds. Then he waters it, he pulls the weeds. And he waters it, and he pulls the weeds, and he keeps believing and every day he goes out to see if anything's coming out of the ground yet. He waters it and he pulls the weeds. And you know what? He is going to keep it up until he sees some fruit, until he sees harvest. And i'll tell ya what, until you make your mind up that you are going to be a Christian who enjoys life, who has what Jesus died to give you, the devil will always find a new way to take it away from you. No matter how much God wants us to have, it's not gonna fall on us if we don't take the grace of God, let it empower us, know that everything comes from God. It's not by my determination, but we partner with God so I have to have some determination.
