"Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to You and wait expectantly"
(Psalm 5:3, NLT)
What are some of the things you do each day? We are all creatures of habit in one way or another, but can you say like the Psalmist that you wait expectantly each day? Most people find it easier to follow the first part of this verse. They bring their requests each day; but really, the key to seeing God move in your life is found in the second partto wait expectantly each and every day.
When you go out with an attitude of faith and expectancy, you are opening the door for God to move on your behalf. You are declaring with your actions that you trust Him. That's why it's so important to feed your faith every day by spending time with Him. So today, make time to study His Word. Take time to bring your requests to Him. Then, go out with an attitude of expectancy and watch what God will do on your behalf!

"Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loads us with benefits"
(Psalm 68:19, NKJ)
When you live a life that honors God, when you obey His Word and you're a person of excellence and integrity, the Scripture says that God's blessings will chase you down and overtake you. You won't be able to outrun the good things of God. He daily loads us with benefits!
People get confused sometimes and think they have to go chasing after the blessings. But really, when you chase after God each and every day, when you make Him your highest priority, the blessings will automatically follow.
Today, make pleasing the Lord first on your list. Let go of any weights or sins that you know are holding you back. Be willing to deal with any issues God brings to light. Don't give in to compromise and temptation because all that will do is keep you from God's best. Instead, make the decision to daily put Him first and keep your heart pure before Him. Then get ready because His blessings will chase you down as He daily loads you with benefits!
