Did you know God is working behind the scenes today, on your behalf? It’s true.

Isaiah 45:2 tells us that He will go before us and make the crooked places straight. Romans 8:28 in the Amplified says; And we know, with great confidence, that God, who is deeply concerned about us, causes all things to work together, as a plan, for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.

I am convinced that God is continually working on our behalf, behind the scenes.

I want to tell you a story. I have a niece, Katlyn, one of the sweetest young ladies you will ever meet. Her life has not been easy. She lost her Dad too soon and she really needed him. Since he went to be with the Lord, her life has been hard. Yet she remains kind-hearted and always has a smile on her face.

Katlyn is expecting a baby, a little girl, due in November. We have been planning her a surprise baby shower. Breanne, my sister, Mom and myself have been scurrying around getting everything together so it will be just wonderful for her. We want it to be the best baby shower she could imagine.

Today I was thinking…we are running around doing all this stuff and Katlyn has no idea what she will walk into this weekend, she is going to be so surprised and happy, she won’t be able to contain herself, yet she has no idea all this is going to take place that day.

Frankly, I don’t know who is going to love it more, Katlyn, or those who have prepared it!

As I thought about all this today, I realized it is the very same with God.

We stand in faith, hoping for a better future, hoping the blessings of God are coming our way but not knowing exactly when they will be here. Yet, all along, God is working in the background, preparing our blessing, getting things ready…setting a table for us in the presence of our enemies.

All this is going on behind the scenes and we have no idea the wonderful things God is preparing for us…yes, we hope, but truthfully, we have no idea how big and wonderful it is.

I Corinthians 2:9 says; Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.

Think about that! We can’t even imagine the wonderful things God has prepared for us. Get your expectations up! It’s time to imagine! It’s time to expect! This is the season of great expectation. Ask God to impart HIS faith and HIS vision for your life into you today. I promise you, it’s bigger than you think!

As I said earlier, I don’t know who is going to enjoy it more, Katlyn or us. I am so excited to be a blessing to her that I can hardly wait. I imagine this is also how God feels. He is preparing things for us because He loves us so. He is behind the scenes setting it all up. While, we have no idea what is happening behind the scenes, He does and He must be beaming with anticipation. How do I know that? I will tell you how.

Isaiah 30:18 says; Therefore, the Lord waits, expectantly, and longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed, happy, fortunate, are all those who long for Him, since He will never fail them.

God is as excited to bless you as you are to get blessed! Isn’t that awesome! He is eagerly anticipating blessing you and pouring out His goodness on you.

God is good and He has good FOR YOU. God is looking and longing for someone who is waiting on Him to be good to them, someone who is EXPECTING HIS GOODNESS.

2 Chronicles 16:9 says; For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. I once did a word study on this scripture to find it is saying, God is looking for those whose heart are trusting in Him and expecting Him to move on their behalf. If you are expecting His goodness to be poured out in your life, then He is looking for you!

Today is YOUR day to believe and to become fully persuaded that God has something GOOD in store for you. It is your day to believe He is working behind the scenes on your behalf, preparing the blessings He has in store for you. Expect big things from God! He longs to be good to you, expect His goodness. Oh my! I am excited! Praise the Lord God Almighty!

Prayer for today: Father, I expect your goodness to be poured out in my life today, tomorrow and every day! You are good to me and I thank you for your goodness! Blessed be the name of the Lord forever more. Amen.
