“And therefore, the Lord earnestly waits, expecting looking and longing to be gracious to you. Therefore, He lifts himself up that He may have mercy on you and show loving kindness to you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed, happy, fortunate to be envied are all those who earnestly wait for Him, who expect and look and long for Him for His victory, his favor, His love, His peace, His joy and his matchless unbroken fellowship.”
Isaiah 30:18 The amplified version
The context of this verse is that Israel was running from God and wanted nothing to do with Him. We need to make sure we are running to Him not from Him.
What are your expectancy and anticipation levels like. We have found favor because we are in Christ and Christ is in us. All heaven is attracted in you because Heaven is attracted to Jesus who lives in you regardless of how well or badly you are doing. Favour comes to my identity in Christ and not because of my performance as a believer. We need every morning to develop an attitude of expectation that His favor is upon us, looking to break in upon our lives. He lifts himself up which is so incredible because He is looking to show His compassion to us. Ask God to give you an upgrade of what it means to live in an expectancy of His favor resting on you every day and ask Him what that would look like.
