Great Expectations

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“When we are obedient to God and His anointing is on it,
we can expect huge things.”
~ Priscilla Shirer in Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted (pg. 103)
It’s when the Lord, Himself, anoints
The things we do and say
That they’ll be multiplied to bless
In an abundant way.
For God can take those little things
We offer from within,
And make them supernaturally
Bring glory back to Him.
If we were just to try those things
In our own strength and might,
They wouldn’t touch a single soul;
They wouldn’t turn out right.
But when we are obedient,
And God anoints it, too,
Then we can fully trust that, with Him,
Even greater things we’ll do.
“Very truly I tell you,
whoever believes in me
will do the works I have been doing,
and they will do even greater things than these,
because I am going to the Father.”
John 14:12 NIV
