It sounds silly to say, but when you think about it, we do it all the time. What sense does it make to pray and ask for something without expecting Him to do it? Furthermore, why should He do it if we don’t expect Him to? That’s one thing I’ve learned about prayer over the years. You must pray confidently and expect that your prayer(s) will be answered. We see it all the time on TV when someone asks for something, they get it, but when it’s time to thank everyone they say stuff like, “Oh wow! I didn’t really think that…” While we are waiting we must expect an answer from God. Expectancy implies confidence as we seen in
As for me, I look to the Lord for help.I wait confidently for God to save me,and my God will certainly hear me.
For I am waiting for you, O Lord.You must answer for me, O Lord my God.
