Part of walking in Faith is having a belief your relationship with God matters; you're expectation is high. "Not true", you say? Well let's have a conversation with a student who's failing a class and the relationship with their teacher is fractured. I'm sure you won't hear any statements of hope such as my teacher will help or my teacher knows my capacity beyond this test. The mere fact that the relationship is fractured yields a lesser expectation. Hmmm, you're still not convinced. Well, let me go where all of us enjoy going, that's right to your Boo, your Love, your Bae the one who you know matters to you and you believe you matter to them. The one whom you believe you're their favorite; yes, that one.
Consider how you flow in expectation with that one. You trust your call will be answered, your text will be responded to and when you're the one on the other side of the door, your Bae will run to open it because you are on the other side. That's how we move in Faith! The subtle cues of a sacred relationship that keeps you running and expecting God will provide, procure and protect you because you're His favorite. Faith, taught you to expect God will provide in moments when you came up empty, procure unforeseen opportunities for you and protect you from those dangers you see but more so from those unseen.
"But, you are a shield around me, O Lord, you begin to whisper at the top of the morning. Because, like your Bae with the strong shoulders and the comfortable chest open for you to nestle your face, God has shown you He's the real hero in your life. He's the foundation of your soles for this Faith walking journey. He's sitting in the core of your soul waiting for you to trust he got you in all things👠
